    You know, sometimes I like analog b ca se s om etim es d git l j st le ves th ngs o t. ;) :p :D

    That said, digital snow sucks just as much as a ghost image and je/..je./diou/.je....[sorry, we are experiencing some technical difficulties] nalog snow.

    HD is cool, though. Until you get used to Ants and then have to go back to MASH.

    Damn, it's just like audio. ARRRRRRRRRGGGGGGGGGGHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!

    What am I supposed to do with the 2 perfectly good CRT tele's I have right now? Just throw them out? I think it's ridiculous and I'm sure cable prices will skyrocket.

    I'm all for new technology, but I want to decide when I will take advantage of digital broadcast and certainly not while a perfectly good CRT TV is still in excellent working order.

    I love my CRT, though smaller, it still has the best picture available. My local cable company (Comcast) offers a digital box or analog. There are certain channels I cannot receive through analog. I went with the digital service and it Sucked big time. The picture froze all the time. I now use the analog signal and it is great and trouble-free. They can kiss my amp if they think I am going to switch. Let's see if the Feds have the stones to mess with the Venom Clan!

    there was talk several years ago.. the a set top TV box converter would be available to those people who still have analog TV's when this happens. I haven't heard anything about that in years though. so it prob died.
