You're wondering if any LCD TVs are able to get the HD signal from direct TV? And if so, which ones?

720p and > is HD, not 480p. i'll suspect 480p or <

i was looking at a 720p lcd tv {cheaper} good for my budget
dont like to waste money on stuff you dont use
i know if you buy one of the lcds most will tell you what signal you are recieving through the lights on the front of the tv
but you have to buy the tv first

The standard signal I believe is 480p. The HD signal I believe is 1080i, although I could be wrong. I highly recommend HD if you have an HD tv though. It really makes a world of difference.

If you live in the UK, the standard analog TV signal and Standard Definition signal is 720x576.

If you live in the US, the standard analog TV signal and Standard Definition signal is 720x480.

A HD TV will not improve the quality of standard defintion TV, it might be better on colors/fast scenes but it won't be any higher resolution.

if your'e not getting a large tv <40" then don't bother with 1080p. unless you plan on sitting it 2 feet from your face.

Hey now, my 22" 1080p TV is about 3 feet from my face.. :lolflag:

720p and 1080p/i are both HD, 480p isn't.
