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.
