I'm currently using cable TV and shopping for my first RPTV. I've read many messages (mostly in the AVS Forum) about the picture quality difference between analog cable signals and satellite signals with no obvious winner. It appears to me that mileage varies based upon TV, TV sharpness setting, and the local cable company. My local cable quality & service is pretty good (probably due to the fact that the entire system went on line about 5 years ago) but I'm not using a cable box as I currently have no "movie channels." I'm not sure if my cable company offers "digital TV" service, though I know that AT&T does (the only other choice in my area) as they bought and upgraded the incumbent cable system. I do plan on adding movie channels, either via cable box or satellite depending upon which route I go. Right now I am leaning towards satellite. I know that I will see more imperfections regardless of whether I stay with cable or switch to satellite due to the increased size of the TV screen. What I don't know, is if purchasing a standard analog set or digital set (i.e. "HD Ready") will make a difference. I have definitely decided to stay with a standard 4:3 aspect screen for now. I've also settled on a 55" screen as the maximum size but could go smaller if needed. 60" and up just seems to big and overwhelming. My sofa seats are about 13' and 15' away from the screen. My family primarily watches broadcast TV but I watch DVDs once or twice a week. I've seen how the line doublers work on analog signals in digital TVs and the picture is quite nice. Recently I was at a local Tweeter store and the sales guy was talking up the idea of going with the digital screen because of the clearer picture for analog signals. I was liking this idea until he mentioned that the analog signal from my cable company will look better than the digital signal from satellite due to the compression. This was quite a surprise since he knew I was planning on switching to satellite service. I'm not sure if this was a slip or he was telling the truth. If I go with analog, my choice is a 4:3 55" Mitsubishi Gold Series. I have no idea what manufacturer/model if digital. And as I mentioned I'm not even sure if I should go analog or digital. I appreciate any comments on the analog vs. digital discussion specific to my situation and also recommendations on digital sets. Thanks in advance. Adam Happiness is owning your own pinball machine!
