If your local stations are transmitting digital signals and you're watching on cable - you aren't getting a digital picture. In order to receive digital TV pictures, you must have a digital TV set with a digital tuner.More >>
For digital television, the numbers sound impressive: two million TV sets sold in the last three years. However, most of those sets aren't being used to receive digital over-the-air broadcast signals.More >>
AP -- An estimated three (m) million people own high definition T-V sets. These T-V's offer the best picture quality available.
If these folks want to record something in high definition -- they'll need a D-V-H-S player-recorder.
The reality is -- D-V-H-S is the only solution.
Industry watchers believe a recordable disc -- High Definition D-V-D -- is anywhere from three to five years down the road.
J-V-C is one manufacturer of a D-V-H-S player-recorder.
Spokesman Rob Payesko (pay-es-koh) says the picture quality on D-V-H-S is four times better than D-V-D.
Hollywood has released about ten D-V-H-S titles, and Payesko says more titles are on the way.
The D-V-H-S player-recorder will also play standard V-H-S and Super V-H-S tapes.
It retails for 13-hundred bucks.
