This HDTV thing CONFUSES the heck out of me! I have basic cable. If I purchase an HDTV, will this do anything different? Will it do anything for my basic channels or am I purchasing a HDTV for no reason? I don't want to spend more money buying digital cable and then an HD reciever. Someone please help!

An HDTV will probably just end up looking worse with an SD source. The picture tubes are higher quality and will just show the flaws in an SD signal more than an analog TV. If you have no HD source, you have no need for an HDTV. If you have a progressive scan DVD player, it will look better on an HDTV.

Hi Mandy,

If you'd like a good basic overview of what it takes to watch HDTV, I suggest you read this article:
