    I still have cable and not very good cable at that. This concerns me because I have read that poor cable looks even worse on the bigger, newer sets.
    My problem is how do I evaluate this at the store when most do not have cable or if they do it is much better than what I have? Could I use a tape I recorded at home of a crappy channel to determine performance in the store? Would this be an effective and valid test of what the set would look like hooked up to my cable?

    What sets were you thinking of purchasing? The type of set will make a difference when it comes to how well certain types of signals will be played.
