I recently picked up 3 HD Cables boxes from Cablevision, even though I only have one HDTV. So I hooked one of the HD cable boxes to a 13 year old 27 inch. CRT Standard tv. When I switch to the HD channels , for ex. 702 or 704 CBS & NBC in HD, I get razor sharp pictures that I never had before with the old standard cable box. And this is using RF cables only! RF cable to the HD box - then RF to the VCR - then RF to the TV!!! Even those low end connections I get a incredible picture. What gives? Is all of this HDTV tv's a scam. :lol: On a serious note, Its a great picture at any angle, closeness, lighting, etc... If your asking why the extra 2 HD boxes? but only one HDTV. In a earlier thread I asked if it would work on Standard tvs & it does. I got them to watch Monsters HD in various rooms. Plus all the other extra HD channels like Kungfu Channel, etc... Anybody else try this?
