I just purchased a Pioneer SD-582-HD5 (58" HDTV). I have digital cable, and was perfectly happy with it, until I saw it on the big screen. It is a good picture, but since I upgraded the TV, I want a great picture. I have a few questions. * Can anyone tell me their experience with picture quality between digital cable and DirectTV? What other comparisons of satisfaction can you relay? * I am interested in the DirectTV with the Ultimate TV package. Does anyone know if there is a receiver system that has Ultimate TV and HDTV capability, or will I have to purchase a Ultimate TV receiver, and a HDTV decoder? This is my first post. I've read a lot, and have been impressed with the level of knowledge on these boards.
