I'm moving into a new house in the next month or two (yey!) and will be purchasing a HD projection TV. To take advantage of my newfound picture resolutions, I have compared services. For the channels/packages I have looked at I think cable is the way to go. They have HD locals and the hardware per month fee is pretty low. How good are HD signals (of course all providers will differ, but on a general basis) through digital cable? I called DIRECTV up and they said the cable signal would be analog and the digital box would convert it to digital and there would be signal lost. This makes sense, but does it make much difference? The way I figure it, the satellite doesn't support local HD anyway, so wouldn't digital cable have a much better picture for locals? I guess I COULD get a TV with a built in HD tuner and use air signals for locals, but I don't really want to look at an antenna, nor deal with trying to get in a nice picture with it. The other large reason I am straying away from satellite is a $500 HD receiver. What do you think I should do?
