This may be an old question, but no one has clearly explained this to me. I've asked as Best Buy and Circuit City, but then what do they know. Many people have told me to buy and HDTV because in 2008 all TV and channels must be in HDTV. While this would be wonderful, I doubt that it could be done in less than 3 years. Another probable myth, all TVs must be DTV or have a digital tuner built in. I thought TV had digital tuners? Many people have qouted me FCC mandates and what not, but I wanted to ask those in the know if any of these myths were true or pure nonsense. Will I have to buy a new DTV or HDTV or DTV convertor. I don't know and would like to shut those people who make stupid and crazy claims about changing technology.
