As background, I live in Tucson where to my knowledge there are no HDTV signals being broadcast. To make matters worse (for receiving HDTV signals), I'm planning a move to just a little North of the Mexican border. My question is: If you own a HDTV "ready" monitor, will the signal coming from a Progressive Scan DVD go directly to the monitor, or must it go through a HD receiver to receive a HD-like signal? Maybe an additional question should be: Will there be any difference in picture quality between a broadcast HDTV signal (assuming good reception) and a signal coming from a progressive scan DVD? As a further evidence of my ignorance, what kind of a signal feeds the HDTV ready monitors when you are watching "HDTV" demo's at places like Best Buy and Circuit City?
