The ABC's of HDTV

Here is an article for those who are thinking about HDTV and really don't know the technology. The article is easy to read and easy to understand:

Unfortunately it's also one of those articles that confuses the mandate to switch over to DTV as a switch over to HDTV.

That's just going to further confuse issues when everybody is buying TV's with digital tuners and thinking they now have an HDTV and are now watching HDTV broadcasts.

Great . . . now we have the article which does help the neophite . . .and your correction which further helps them to understand the difference.

Thanks BobY

Just read the stickies or better yet:
Rbinck's blog http://highdefinitionblog.com/

All your new threads linking to banal newspaper articles are more a source of misinformation than education compared to what's already been here for months or years

Maicaw:

You lost me . . . again. This article is dated 3/11/07. That's yesterday. We have been getting a bunch of new people to the forum over the last few days.

If you are complaining about the number of threads I start . . . why? I like to start threads. Did I miss some rule or protocol that tells me I can only start a certain number of threads . . Did I "miss the memo?"

Until such time that either you become a moderator, or a moderator sends me a PM telling me to cut down on the number of threads started . . . I will continue to do as I do. I have received no such PM.

And a hint . . . most new people don't ready the stickey's. Look at all the questions they post . . . all are answered in the sticky's.

So do me a favor . . . please . . . give it a rest.

(just read his post) - The stickies are there to get the new members up to speed - with current and correct information at a technical level suitable for the users of the forum -
If you haven't read them - and I doubt you have -then do it now - you would see the omissions, mistakes, stupidity and ignorance permeating the articles in the links you post
Just because some technically challenged moron wrote it or some editor or publisher posted it 'yesterday' doesn't mean its "news" or correct -in fact most of the ones you have been linking to are what cynics call "olds"
They are regurgitated BANAL marketing pap

BTW a couple of days ago you did ask forum members to send you PMs telling you to Stop - if we wanted you to cease and desist - You got at least two I know of - telling you to STOP - care to fess' up how many PM "STOP's " -you actually received?

ABSOLUTELY . . . glad you asked.

I got 2 STOPS . . .I got 2 Keep Going's and a third that said keep going but to make sure what I was posting was not posted previously.

If you don't like the threads . . . don't post in them. . . or if you see an error in the article you can correct the error like BobY did .. . with diplomacy.

Well I certainly see a lot of plain old incorrect information posted that sounds authoritative (biggest exception is to trust 100% anything BobY says!). I find myself at times being not as clear as I know I can be on a certain point.

Lee is 100% correct, noobs simply will not first go through the stickies. Fact of life. Anyone who has ever run a board or been a mod knows this very well.

Please don't trust 100% of everything I say--you are bound to be disappointed. But I promise I won't intentionally mislead anybody. So, you can trust my sincerity 100%--even if I'm wrong :D

I've learned a lot here, too. I've even learned things from people who maybe didn't express themselves as nicely as I would of liked.

Eh, learning is learning...
