    HDTV Connector Compatibility...

    Thanks for the reply, BTW. Well, with the really bad winds over here, I ended up without a satellite signal permanently. So, the satellite company could not get anybody out until AFTER the weekend. I work full time, so I won't be able to have anybody come out for another week. I figured if I...
