I like how you can explain that in such an easy-to-understand way. I'm not exactly slow with technology, but when it comes to cell phones and TVs it's not...quite straight forward! I think we already have HD channels on our cable box, so I'll have to try out my mother's TV to see what it will do. Oh, and another question! HDMI cables sound simple enough, but when I get a flatscreen will I really need one? And if I do need one, does it matter which brand I get?
