Ok, so I bought into the whole digital TV hype, purchased a 16x9 PT47wx49 HDTV, $50 TERK dish clip on antenna, along with the new Samsung SIR-T150 ota decoder, and hooked it up via component cables. Everything works, but that's the problem! First of all, there are hardly any shows in high-def on TV (big 4 networks), unless you like crime dramas or stupid Jay Leno. What happened to hi-def NFL football on Thanksgiving?!?!? Hello!?!?!? Second, the decoder box has a manual switch ON THE BACK of the unit for outputting in either 1080i or 480p. Well, since 99% of material is in 480p, it makes sense to use that setting for the best picture, instead of upconverted 1080i. But when a hi-def show DOES come on, I have to open my cabinet, get a flashlight, reach around and switch the decoder to 1080i!! What a pain! WHy can't this be an automatic switch done by the decoder, or at least a button on the remote?!?!? Mind you, this decoder box is NEW and is getting GREAT reviews. Third, when viewing different stations in 480p mode, the picture fills the screen differently between each station! So while CBS (for example) picture fills the screen nicely, FOX might have ugly vertical black bars on the left and right (not 4x3 bars, but thin overscan-type bars). Great! So if I watch a 2-hr Fox show, I can now expect black bar burn-in on my new projection HDTV!!! I thought digital TV was developed with standards over many years?!?! And this is what we get? At least with NTSC TV, you can expect the picture to fill the screen on EVERY station! Fourth, even though I'm getting consistent middle-of-the-road digital reception on all 4 available stations (the signal meter is dead center from weak to strong), I routinely experience short audio drop-outs, and pixel-corruption in the video. Usually it occurs in short bursts, but sometimes certain quadrants of the video screw up and can last for a minute or so! And this is on a cold clear night with no obstructions for miles around! Fifth, I have dish network, so getting a DIsh Player 6000 was my first inclination. Ahhhh... but guess what, you then have to buy ANOTHER dish and point it in a different direction for the hi-def satellite! No way, Jose! I don't want my house looking like Sanford and Son's home! Plus, I don't want to run more coax wires into the house, drill more holes in the floor, etc. etc. I know Direct TV fits their hidef on the same satellite, so now I have to consider switching to them!?!?! Sixth, even if I DID go satellite HDTV, I can only expect to receive a demo channel (woopee!), HBO (or Showtime) movies and maybe pay per view?!!? No thanks, I'd rather rent the movies on DVD and watch them on my new progressive player! Where are the big 4 networks in Hidef on satellite? Where's the discovery channel hi-def? Where are my local channel in hi-def? Why is this taking so long to deliver!?!? Seventh, when viewing the major network channels, I not only get to see the networks channel logo superimposed on the screen, but I ALSO get to see my local broadcaster's network ID splattered all over the screen as well!!! And usually it's even bigger than the main network's logo! So, we get a better 480p picture, but have to stare at 2 network logos the entire time!!??! ARRRRRGH!!!! What's the point?!?! With all these issues, I have to ask the question... are we any better off with DTV today?!?!? I CAN tell you this, that $650 samsung's going back to Best Buy where it belongs! At least until the nincompoops driving this digital "revolution" can get their act straight. I don't mind paying an arm and leg for equipment that works as advertised, but so far, it's a gigantic mess!!!
