So a month ago after a long tortorous wait, I got my very first HD-Ready Widescreen TV. (This is also the first TV I have ever owned that is MINE. I got a 32 Inch Sony Bravia. (Not the Black XBR one, the one right below it) and I love it. I am a big movie fan so this TV was mainly bought to basically be my monitor to have something to show the picture on my shiny DVD's to go with the nice 5.1 surround sound system I have. I even bought a Sony HDMI Upscaling Player so I can see more of my TV's potential and I do notice a distinct improvement with the upscaling ON. For years I have lived in a home with VERY basic cable. I have not been much of a TV watcher for years. Last year the only 2 shows I watched was Enterprise and 24. This week I decided to order TV for my TV and I went with Cable, which in my area is Comcast. I got Digital Classic + HD with a HD Box and DVR all in one. OH MY GOD TRUE HD is simply breathtaking. I see my Tv's true power now. The upconverting DVD player is nice.. but not this nice. I could stare at Discovery HD all day and night. The only thing bad is it's so amazing that normal TV looks like shit. They need to make everything HD like yesterday! It's makes you want everything in HD. But for now I have... 7 channels. *Sigh* (24 in HD and 5.1 will be mighty cool though!) Also while I'm rambling. Because I have not been into TV before, I have never ever used a TiVo or the like. I know what they can do of course and know they are very popular but had never owned or obviously really had a need for one. It took me about 5 minutes to become totally addicted to the DVR of my cable box. That is one of the coolest, handiest home entertainment things to come down the pipe in ages. It's so easy to use, records great, no tapes, and it's part of my cable package so I only pay $10 extra for the box that is both HD and a DVR. Two tuners to record one thing and watch something else is also very very handy. So I'm seeing my Tv's true power and have alot of options to show it off. This next part I may be posting in the wrong area but here goes. I'm a smart guy and I know how things work but something confuses me a little. HD is either 720 x 1280 (or whatever) or 1080 x something like 1920 right? Ok I have a TV that says in the manual that is displays ANY input at 1368 x 768 which is of course my TV's resolution. So how does this work? The TV is getting basically a higher resolution than it can handle so it drops it down to it's own resolution? But since the source resolution is so high, it uses the TV to it's maximum potential? Do I have that about right? I'm thinking of the analogy of a digitl photo. The more megapixels, the bigger it can be and still look good. Is that a good example? Sorry so long, I just wanted to express my love for HD. I'm curious though so quick poll: 720p or 1080i?
