I love explaining things so I thought I'd give you guys the opportunity to do some I have a CRT TV that's wider than it is tall, as opposed to square, which my mother's is. I have a button on the remote that changes the picture somehow. Sometimes people's faces are too thin and pressing that button improves their proportions. This wasn't an issue when TVs were square. Now there are Plasma TVs and LCD TVs and various other types. Then there's digital TV. Then there's the number of pixels, which I can understand on a computer screen but don't see how it's connected with the picture beamed from the station. Related to that, I presume, there are also high-definition TVs...and the discussions about whether certain TVs are really high-definition. There are TV aerials and satellite dishes... I don't know whether the high-definition applies to only DVDs or to the TV channels as well. Whether a special DVD player is necessary... It's a morass of technology that frankly leaves me cold. Hell, I only bought a DVD player last year. No, I'm not taking the mickey. I really am that unknowledgeable. Would anyone care to enlighten me and explain to an idiot what it's all about? Please, no links. I've tried to research but it just confuses me. The kind of explanation that fits in a forum box would be good for my tired brain. Any information would be appreciated. Thanks.
