How To Find High-Definition Content For Your HDTV By Adrienne Maxwell July 2006 Walk into any sports bar in the country and you’re likely to see the same thing. Rows of brand-new widescreen flat panels adorn the walls, purchased by owners anxious to make their place “the” place to watch the big game. But don’t except to be treated to HDTV on said panels. No, what you often see are plain old standard-definition signals – even worse, plain old standard-definition signals stretched disproportionately across the screen. It begs the question, why spend thousands of dollars to upgrade to HDTVs and not shell out a little extra cash to actually show high-definition programming?

10 Reasons Why You NEED To Be an Early Adopter of HD Discs (Blu-ray and HD DVD) June, 2006 By Jerry Del Colliano 1. High Definition Video is many times better than DVD. Unless you are legally blind, you can see the vast difference between DVD video at 480i and the HD disc formats at 1080i. Would it be better if the players reproduced 1080p? Of course, but how many of us have 1080p HDTVs throughout our homes? It’s tough enough to convert to all HDTV sets capable of 1080i. And when you get down to it, the difference between 1080i and 1080p is noticeable but miniscule when compared to the difference between a DVD and an HD disc.

How To Calibrate Your HDTV Using The Top Set-up Discs By Adrienne Maxwell May 2006 So you’ve waded through all of the confusion about HDTV vs. EDTV, DLP vs. plasma vs. LCD and digital vs. analog connections, and boldly dropped your hard-earned cash on a new digital television. You’ve ordered an HDTV package from your cable or satellite provider, you’ve hooked up your DVD player, and now all you want to do is sit back and enjoy the experience. But wait. You’ve come this far. Don’t you think you owe it to yourself and your new TV to finish the job by making sure the picture looks as good as possible? This may be hard to believe, but most manufacturers don’t set up TVs to look their best right out of the box. They set up TVs to catch your eye in a store. Seldom does a store’s viewing environment match the one ...

AV Education on RHT Installing LCD TVs Everywhere Written by Bryan Dailey Why is it that the best ideas always come in the bathroom? From the first moment I laid my eyes on a small wall-mounted LCD TV on the wall above the urinals at a high-end golf course in Las Vegas several years ago, I knew that someday my dream home was destined to have TVs like this in the bathrooms, too. When I first dreamed up this idea, even the smallest of LCD TVs were well over $1,000 and the picture quality was marginal at best. As prices have fallen and the quality of the picture of most LCD panel TVs has gone up, the idea of having several rooms with wall-mounted TVs began to creep into my mind as well.
