    Hi, I'm a total noob and have been reading lots of archives to get HDTV terminology and such down.

    I think I have a general understaning and am not sure if HDTV is for me, but I want a new TV 42" or greater.

    Will a Toshiba 50HDX82 or any other RPTV make standard cable look better then on my 6 year old zenith tube tv?

    Problem is, I mainly watch cable TV and my friend is telling me the picture will look grainy and crappy unless its a HDTV signal or DVD. I watch DVDs but 95% of my time is spent watching cable stations and some network primetime.

    Should I be getting a flat panel TV instead? Maybe HDTV isn't for me since it seems most video nuts watch mainly DVDs.

    Thanks for the help,but I don't want to spend 2 grand on a TV and have my cable channels look no better then they do on my 6 year old 27" zenith.

    Thanks allot for your help. I visited the store but they couldn't hook up regular cable for me to look at. I don't understand why my digital cable would look crappy even though it may be an analog signal. Can it look worse then my 6 year old zenith?

    of course what do I know :)
