I plan on getting a satellite shortly in order to receive HDTV broadcasts. My set is a Sony 53XBR300 which is 1080i capable. It *will not* handle a 720p signal. A few questions: 1) Can a satellite decoder convert the 720p signal to 1080i or will those stations simply not be available? If they won't be available, what's the point of 720p *incapable* sets if that becomes the widely used format? I doubt Sony will let me upgrade to a Grand Wega. 2) What type of connection do you use to connect the satellite decoder to the TV? I think I need to use either a 5 prong (RGB & HD+TV) connection or a 3 prong (Yb,Pb,G) connection into Video 5, which is the only input on the set that can handle anamorphic. 3) Since the XBR300 only has one component video input, I also need to buy a component video switcher to switch between DVD and satellite viewing. Is this correct? 4) One programming question. I've read that it is difficult to broadcast sports in HDTV. That's the type of programming I'm most interested in, along with the occasional movie. Any sports currently shown in HDTV? How's the NFL shaping up? Any help would be greatly appreciated.
