[TechAssist] Re: HDTV.

Thank you Damon...that makes sense...this and your other posts about sending SD 
on the HD transmitter.
Wayne...this Hitachi has buttons to change aspect and virtual HD...I just 
checked and I see I can't change
the scan mode in video one...but on other inputs I can.

A lot of the tuners will display the transmission format, but not the
shows....ie TV 33 can show up as HD with I Love Lucy, and 16:9 is generally
HD, especially if you can't change the format from FULL, to Normal or Zoom
modes....those only occur with SD transmissions...there is a digital code
sent by the station to force your TV to stay in 16:9. But even then, that's
the Transmitter format, not the signal's. You can put an SD signal on a HD
transmitter.....Kinda like dealing with color and black and white 40 years
ago....

| Here's another question for those more knowledgeable with this..
| We get a few HD stations..but how do you know if they are transmitting in
HD or standard definition?
| If it is 16x9, is it HD?
| We have one station, UPN, that is usually in 16x9, but the picture is a
lot more grainy than the others.
| I know CBS has daytime programming in 4x3, but after 8 pm, most
programming is in 16x9..when the signal is
| there.

| Believe it or not, PBS in Fort Wayne is the only TRUE HD station. NBC,
CBS,
| ABC at present is Digital, but moving towards HD. I thought Fox was
Digital,
| but not from what I've seen on the ATSC terrestial tuners I've been
setting
| up recently.

| | LeRoy,
| | Then you haven't seen a true HD station. Seems, CBS transmit the best HD
| programming than the others. NBC
| | a close second.
| | NBC is usually only SD.
| | Fox just came abroad and it is OK and UPN is the worse.
| | ABC, who knows? I can't get anyone there to return my phone calls or
| emails.

| | Actually, it is NOT worth it. IMHO.
| | The picture available on the NTSC system was good enough for ANYBODY.
| | I think the HDTV picture looks a little PHONY,.. to me !,...but, I don't
| | shop at Wal-Mart either,....so who gives a dam what I think ?
