My parents are upgrading their TV set, but to be frank, we are pretty confused. The shock first: They use an old TV (not flat), no HD, I'm not sure about digital, and there's also still a VHS recorder connected with Scart.
I think I never really understood the new technologies and those implications for real. I'll write what I understand, but clarifications would be great:
I don't understand the point about digital vs. analog at all, I always thought digital meant HD, but apparently not so. So what is the point?
And I understand HD - higher resolution -, but will television ever (in the next five years or so) be in HD?
The truth is, we wanted to buy a new normal 80" LCD flat TV, which apparently is also HD now and not very expensive (and reviewed well, so...), but we also wanted to buy a DVD recorder. Does that make sense? If TV is in HD in the future, how about DVD recording? I haven't seen any Blu-ray recorders. And how do the connections work? Could I, for instance, connect the old VHS recorder - somehow - to the TV set?
And, last but not least, how about not HD quality on these TVs? I thought LCD always meant fixed resolutions, in the reviews I found they said normal resolution would work okay as well... Puh...
