Some Questions You May Want to Ask Before Ordering a HD Television

By Nathan Brown T Subscribe to RSS | March 22nd 2012 | Views:

If you have been watching the television scenario during the last decade then you will not have missed the excitement they seem to be making on TV watchers. In fact some operators like Dish HD are going in for more and more channels that are exclusively HD. HD transmission is undeniably a pleasure to experience and if you are one of those about to buy HD television for your home, you may have several questions for which you are yet to find the appropriate answers. Here are some questions that new HD television buyers ask frequently. Some of the answers are obvious and probably you have the answers already. Nevertheless, asking them again can be reassuring and will let you shop for the right kind of HD television with greater confidence.

a.What makes HDMI inputs so important and what are they? HDMI simply means Hi-Definition Multimedia Interface. They find use when a HD signal has to enter your television to show as images on the screen. Having at least two interfaces on the television for receiving signals is the minimum you should expect in your television when you shop for one.

b.Do new HD television owners need to buy a newer version of DVD player for compatibility? The answers can be yes and no. It depends on what you expect from your new television. Your new television is capable of playing from an old DVD, but a new version can convert a 480p MPEG2 video stream to 720p or 1080i to give you that enhanced quality.

c.How much do HDTVs cost and do I need to order any accessories along? Accessories are not really a necessity. However if you want to put a home theatre in place then it is advisable to shop for some good speakers along with an appropriate amplifier. Prices can vary greatly; small sets cost as little as few hundred dollars and the high end models can be several thousand dollars. It would be unwise to venture into giving a price range here.

d.Between the 720p and 1080i resolution, which one is better? It all depends on the program. If the program involves a lot of motion then the 720p should work better, on the other a 1080i is good if the motion is slower. So if you are going to see sports most of the time, choose the 720p option. In fact most sports channels prefer the 720p transmission mode, and sports channels have the highest image motion.

e.Does my HD television need to be large screen? No, it is not necessary that HD televisions need to be large screen always. In fact there are so many models in the 19 inch range. But the point to note is you will not see the image differences between a standard television and HD as acutely like in a large screen. It does not make much sense to go for a small screen HD unless you have a pressing need to have one.

f.Can I include a front project with my order for a HD television, and what are the benefits of having one? You will need a front projector if want image sizes larger than 70 inches and up to 100 inches. Of course there are some HD televisions in the 100 inch range, but the prices can be prohibitive and more over they are not normally used in homes. A front projector makes sense if you are conscious about the budget. The negative side to using a front projector is that unless you can control the ambient light in the room, you will not get the right quality that HD users expect.
