    I have a HD ready TV. I am not ready to invest in a HD receiver (not enough programing yet).

    I have heard that satellite signal looks worse than analog cable on HD ready sets. Is this true?

    My cable service sucks! Some channels look horrible. Would a satellite be a good option.

    Thanks,

    Mark

    There is that possiblity, but it is much more likely that the digital satellite picture, which has a horizontal resolution of about 400 lines, will look much better than analog cable, which is only about 330 lines.

    What you are referring to, I think, is the effect of the TVs line doubler on an indeaquate picture. I have digital cable (a little better than analog, but lower in resolution than satellite), and the pitcure on my Toshiba 56X81 is outstanding.

    So, most likely, satellite would be a good option.
