    Hey Gang,

    I have a 2000 Model Sony Wega 32" XBR TV. I'm happy with the whole system that I have in place, but am constantly looking for upgrades.

    I know that the Wega is HD ready, but I'm not sure I understand. Does this mean that with a decoder, I can get Hi-definition broadcasts with it? If so, how do I incorporate a Hi-Def piece of equipment into my setup?

    Equipment in Place:

    Yamaha Receiver RX-595a

    Sony Wega TV 32"XBR

    Sony DVD DVP-S330

    BA Head VR-12

    BA Mains VR-940

    Infinity Surrounds RS1

    BA Sub PV-600

    I really enjoy the high quality of DVD, but after seeing HD in Japan when I was there, I know there is better.

    Any help would be appreciated.

    Thanks,

    Kraig

    I believe HD-ready means that the TV is capable of displaying HD signals from outside sources, but is not capable of receiving the signals with its own tuner. You need a set-top box decoder for this.
