Better stay away from them.   Like the PVR/Tivo/Myth, Hi-def is one of
those "hard to go back" things.  Once you watch a few shows in hi-def,
your old TV and 480i shows in general look blurrier than they did

Though I don't think it's as much of a must-have as a PVR (which is odd
because it costs a lot more).  It varies on the type of show.  Watching
sitcoms in hi-def is nice.  Dramas are also nice.   Shows with cinematography
like nature shows and travel shows are a major difference.  Sports can
be a whole new experience especially if the camerwork is done assuming
