Pixelation on an LCD TV

One of the local stations here have already done several tests going digital. There may be more, the WSOC has switched their newscast to digital several time to see if your TV is ready. They'd make the switch and then tell people that if you're just hearing their voice, your TV is not ready, but if you saw them it was ok. My old analog sets were always fine...and seeing what that HD set did that we bought my son, I will not be in any hurry to get anything new for us.

I wonder if Kurb or Pryd has seen this thread. Wilmington was the national city for the test and the entire city switched over already to digital - I think it was in Sept they did it. I asked them how it went and at the time, they said it was smooth.

One of our local networks is scheduled to do a test (or they may already have, I don't know)....should open quite a few eyes. We already get the local networks in HD via DirecTV so it doesn't much matter to me.

I have an analog tv too. I do have satellite (direct tv) and they say there should be no interruptions. I'm holding off getting an LCD or flat screen tv (I have no idea what is what) and just want to make sure the action on the tv is worth the money. Right now I see action on others tv as fuzzy.

If the signal is over the air it is actually better than cable when you live in a good area, they don't have to compress the signal OTA, for cable and sattelite they do

OTA is 15mbs max (or there abouts), comcast has had 30Mbs (star wars eps III on HBO). cable and esp fiber win, sat is getting much better too. ota is the worst of the bunch, but it is free.
