I recently have been upgrading my home theater system, and after seeking and getting great advice here, I went with the Panasonic CT34-WGX50, their 34" 16:9 HDTV-capable set. I'd been warned that the standard analogue cable image can look pretty poor on a HDTV-ready set, but others had had somewhat positive experiences. I took my chances, and wow! The cable image looks like CRAP! On the other hand, when the opening cut scene from SILENT HILL 2 appeared on the screen, we all went "Oooh!", and a DVD (even played on the Playstation) looked fantastic. I've ordered the Avia disc, and will be calibrating the set with that down the road, but does anyone else have any suggestions as to how to improve my cable experience? I watch quite a lot of cable, either live or TiVo'd, and I'm quite glum over the sheer lousiness of the image. (Feel free to say "We told you so!", but only if you're making a helpful suggestion!) I live in New York City, and get Time Warner Cable. Would there be any advantage whatsoever to getting digital cable? Right now I'm SO wishing I'd spend $1500 less and got a great regular TV set! Thanks all, J.
