Hi-def

I watched the game at home last night on ESPN and that High definition stuff gave me a head ache...granted I watched on a regular TV but the pitchure looked like stillframes peiced together. Although the picture looked sharp between plays when no one was moving, the actual play just made me dizzy. Is applied to all games at some point? Am I gonna have to buy a Hi-Def TV in order to watch without getting a head ache? What do you guys think?

Re: Hi-def

Humm, I'm not sure you can watch Hi-Def channels on regular TV. In my case all the hi-def channels have non hi-def compliment channels. ESPN has the hi-def channel which looks awesome and the non hi-def looks decent but it isn’t crisp. I would be surprised if you were able to tune into the hi-def channel on a regular TV.

Re: Hi-def

Hmmmm..... you were watching the HD channel on a non-HDTV. And it really didn't look right??

Do you have the same problem with your color contrast when you are watching on your Black & White TV?

Hmmm.... don't worry, we'll get to the bottom of this!

Re: Hi-def

you cant watch a HD channel on STD TV. the resolution would be 4 times larger than what your tv can handle.

Re: Hi-def

I saw the Skins-Bengals preseason game in high def and it was incredible, a near religious experience!

I saw the "Best of Jenna Jamison" in HD and it actually was a religious experience!

Re: Hi-def

I could see the Best of Jenna Jameson as interpreted by (SOMEONE THAT DRAW PICTURES) and still have a religious experience.

EDIT: (Not re-enacting, but drawing, hence art, but bad taste nonetheless)

I left for a meeting after I posted that and came back and realized how disturbing a thought it is...

Re: Hi-def

non HD tvs do not resolve HD signals. The HD signal is actually converted to a normal analog signal which cannot appear pixelated or digital in any way except....
If the station from which you receive a broadcast signal has technical difficulties and the signal the tv actually receive is actually corrupted then the converted analog signal will be an analog interpretation of a screwed up digital feed. You should not have noticed any difference in appearance between a normal game feed and the digital feed since your tv cannot even read it. I am thinking your mind and eyes are playing tricks on you.

Re: Hi-def

I just got Comcast's HD/DVR Tuner, and my 32 inch Sony WEGA is HD-capable (i'm guessing), so I'm able to watch HD programming. It's a bit smaller, but the clarity is huge compared to the regular analog feed.

Re: Hi-def

If you buy and HDTV be sure to get a glass tube one. I work for a media outlet here on Long Island and we have a full department of people that does nothing but study different makes of TV's. So I consulted them before I bought mine and they said hands down an old-fashioned glass tube HDTV produces the best picture and the LCD and plasma are way behind at this point, but they are still in their first generation. I bought a Sony 32in wega for $1,000 and it kicks ass. –Summo

Re: Hi-def

Honestly Though Is Hdtv That Much Better? I Have Direct Tv And Tivo, And A 60" Sony That Has Hdtv, But Im Afraid To Spend The Extra Money Upgrading My Tivo Unit To A Hdtv. But If You Guys Can Tell Me That Its Worth It. Ill Go Get One Right Now.
