Okay, I am one of the world's last converts. I don't have cable, I don't have satellite and I don't have an HD-ready television. Fact is, I got pissed off with DirecTV a few years ago ($29 in the ad, $79 if you want to use Tivo, get local channels, etc.) and told them to go forth and multiply (but not in those words). Anyway, I was at an upscale hotel this week and they had HDTV. To me, some shows looked pretty good but most looked like they had a LOT of artifacts. What's the deal? On cheap TV I don't notice the lines that make up the screen, but I notice artifacts on the better televisions. What's the point? What am I missing?
