Quote of the Day - As soon as the broadcast signal is out there, we will start selling those HDTV sets.
MIPTC had the opportunity to watch Super Bowl XLI on HDTV, as many did, but the HDTV signal from Cox Cable gets an "F" in my book. It seemed like every time there was a major play, the dreaded pixelation "stopped" the signal, and then when it caught up, the play was over. TIVO could do nothing to rescue the play.
Sure, the picture was sharp despite the rain on the cameras, but the interruption wasn't worth the the trade-off. We almost switched to the regular CBS channel, but tried to watch the entire game in HDTV.
To add insult to injury, everything associated with the system (television, cable box, HDTV signal and the receiver to process the audio and signal) is expensive.
If you're thinking about buying, you may want to wait until the technology catches up.
