None of the other sections of the forum looked like the right place to post this, so I have decided to post it here. I'm interested in buying an SD or HD television, and I have a couple of questions:
1. If I get a TV with a digital tuner, will I be able to play my old Nintendo and PlayStation games on it, or will I have to run the console through a converter box?
2. My parents have an HDTV and get TV using an antenna, but none of the TV channels here are in HD. One of the news channels actually lies to their viewers by playing this commercial stating, "News channel x, now broadcast in HD!" but when we press the info button on the remote, they are in the digital equivalent of standard definition. So, having an HDTV here is pointless for me, but I'd get one if SD and HD were around the same price.
3. Where should I shop for an SD or HDTV with dual tuners (analog and digital) in the USA, given that I'll need the analog one to play older video game consoles. I want a smaller sized TV that I can easily take places.
4. What about VCRs and DVD players? I'm guessing both won't work on a digital TV since they record and play in analog.
I know you think you understand what you thought I said,
but I'm not sure you realize that what you heard is not what I meant!
