    Once you watch the the nice TV with no scan lines (no matter how bad your standard cable is) you'll find it hard to watch any analog set.
    You're now and HDTV snob.
    At least that's what has happened to me. It takes a good 15 minutes for my brain to adjust to watching an analog TV now. Those 15 minutes are painful as I can see all the scan lines....kind of like watching my old computer monitor when I had accidentally picked a mode it would only do Interlaced.

    But the video from my analog cable looks worse than on the old RPTV I used to watch. Nowadays, the video feed from cable can look horribly downconverted when the line doubler kicks in (this happens a lot when I watch ESPN and they vertically shrink the screen so they can plop in the ticker at the bottom on the screen).
