Who doesn't have hd components for TV's?  It's like standard now.

Man, you are in for a treat!

New TV arrived today...not too impressed.
I guess you really need all this HD-this and HD-that thingys to fully enjoy an HD TV....
"Normal" TV channels look like poop now.

 



Yeah HD tvs pretty much destroy any possibility of enjoying DVDs or standard def. TV programming. Some good DVD players out there do a good job of upscaling, but it's just not that great. frown.gif


I wasn't aware that it would be this bad :/
The TV itself isn't bad. Pretty solid Toshiba one without all this SmartTV nonsense.

Guess now I have to look into buying one of these HD receiver thingys....

Our old TV finally died after like 12 years.
I don't watch TV so I never really felt the urge to buy all this new fancy HD stuff.
This thing is for my mother and while she might not be this picky when it comes to image quality, even she noticed that the picture just isn't as sharp as with our old TV.

Yeah, it's one of the fuku bukuro bags of random stuff! ^-^

 

Yep, SD looks pretty bad on HDTVs. Get some glorious 1080p anime BDrips (not any of that streaming crap) and you're in for a treat ;)

People without HDTVs? They do still exist unfortunately. I also blame the cable companies (at least here in Mericuh) because they charge you an extra $5 or $10 for an HD compatible cable box and then usually make you pay more for HD channels. Oh, and they also put them way out in the middle of nowhere in the channel listings so normal people (like my parents) can't figure out where the hell they are...

My wooden ears fail to let me experience the heavenly pleasure that is HD audio.

Do I get banned for something like this here?

Banned.
Reason: Not audiophoolish enough.

Sweet!

I'm totally fine with watching my 1080p animu on my 24" Full HD monitor :3

 

Jup, we have the exact same problems here in Germany.

Yeah, it's pretty awesome! Lots of lolz in here, that's for sure.

 

Yeah, it still looks pretty good at 24". Though to be honest, not sure if you can tell 1080p apart from 720 at that size.

 

Grr, I hate the cable companies.

I only watch tv for sports, espn, disney channel and discovery.  Gotta be in HD for those.  It's not really new...it'd been out for a long time.  OTA channels are free in HD here in the usa.

Cox cable and time warner offers free HD boxes; just ask them.  We've never had to pay more for HD channels.  Time warner also has the HD channels as the standard channel not the SD version.  also, you always press the "button" on the remote for the box and it will have an option for "watch in hd" if you are on the SD channel.

Lucky... Here, you have to pay more for an HD box, and more for HD channels. -_-
