This post title is literal, I’m talking about a bigger TV (and more).
I’ve had a 27-inch CRT Sony for years (great picture), but the idea always was to move this TV upstairs to the bedroom (where the bedroom TV is a disaster), and get a flatscreen for the living room.
Finally got the chance to get one of those big, honkin’ LCD screens (Sanyo).
Wow. Bigger pic and all that, but – TV and DVD – lots of pixalation.
Big TV was just Part I of my III part plan.
Next, got an upscaling DVD player. I just watched Casino, and the well-lit parts of this are (especially) outstanding. Even on a big-ass TV, very little grain, and virtually no pixalation.
Then, I upgraded from Comcast Analog to Comcast Digital (with HD channels).
Many issues to report, but bottom line:
Lester Holt on MSNBC news (HD) is impeccable, even on this large screen.
The digital feed makes non-HD channels much better than analog, really.
There are issues (that I’ll bring up as I really identify and get fixed/not), but overall, WOW.
I’ll only be watching HD channels (networks, History Channel etc) unless there isn’t an HD option (Comedy Central – with “The Daily Show” and “The Colbert Report” – are sadly NOT HD….).
Welcome to the 21st Century, you analog Luddite…
