Wow, wow and wow!

Hi All,

Been lurking here awhile as I researched my foray into HTDV. I never
posted as all the questions I had were already answered by some very
knowledgable people in this group.

I decided to post for two reasons, first, to say thank you to those
that are so helpful around here and second, to say wow!

I got my new Hitachi 57f500 a few days ago, and also upgraded my
Comcast service to Digital and got the HTDV box. I also sprung for
the HD pack for my Xbox and a new tuner/amp that supported Dolby
digital (old one was pro logic only).

After doing all the hookups, first thing I did was watch a movie on my
progressive scan DVD - noticeable improvement, both in video and
sound. A big wow here.

Then, I played some Xbox games through the new HD pack - another big
wow! I've only played 480p games so far, but they look noticeably
better. The big wow here so far has been the dolby digital over pro
logic. Stunning really.

Then I watched some HD content through the motorola comcast box - big,
big wow here! Man, I know I'm preaching to the choir here, but the
experience is so profoundly improved over 480i that I more-or-less sat
and drooled for a few hours last night in front of my set!

Ok, that's it, just letting you all know there's a new convert in the
ranks and one that's eagerly looked for more and more HD content!

It is undoubtedly replaces the next best wow thing from this new
century / millennium.
The first wow was XM Satellite Radio. 100 digital channels that I can
receive at home or anywhere else in the Cont. U.S. with NO
commercials on the music channels.
I still have my XM and it still rates the first wow of the century. I
will never listen to terrestrial radio again, unless I'm forced to.

HDTV is the second of the century, but moves to #1 overall in my list,
just because not only does it sound great, but you can see it as well.

Especially since the Despicable ClearChannel Borg have
taken over about every station in the country....

Yeah, that too, but she was ... "wow" back in the 60's, decades ago,
last century to be exact, even in the last millennium.

Yours was when?

You have to face the facts that they just aren't as good as the Pats.

Maybe Martz is part of the problem? I heard that Faulk was running well
but Rams tried to air it out and after the game, Martz said something
like "that is our game, to pass" when asked why they didn't run more.

No question Martz is part of the problem, but in fairness, he's been
part of our success as well.

I think today will be very telling, he came down hard on the troops
over the week in an appeal to get some players to step up. This is
something that he has never really done.

Today's game is the Rams season and I finally get to see it in high
def! :)
