    Long of the short is that most of the HDTVs tested failed to properly display the HD image. D'oh.

    I don't understand why its so hard to produce an HDTV. Today we have displays that can handle 2560x1600, so why is it so hard to produce 1900x1080? :confused:

    It doesn't look like they tested any CRT HDTVs. I wonder why? Are they not having issues? I have a Philips 30" CRT HDTV, it's great so far.

    HD CRT TVs show all 1080 lines. Most LCD and plasma TVs circa 2005 have only 768 lines or so at most, so a 1080i (or 1080p) signal has to be downscaled to fit. This is not an issue with CRT TVs.
