DVRs Support HDTV and DD?

Generally, yes. HDTV and dolby digital are widely used, therefore the DVR capability is available.

Additional info for the United States - some cable companies (Comcast, Time Warner) now offer DVRs from Motorola and Scientific Atlanta that record and playback in HD with whatever audio is broadcast; usually for only about $5/mo for the equipment rental. Satellite companies also offer this service.

At this point all HD DVR boxes available in New Jersey record in HD and in Dolby Digital, as long as that is how the source is being broadcast from the cable company.

When everything goes digital, how will I know if my television will work?

All televisions sold after March 1, 2007 include a digital tuner (by law) so you are good if you have bought a TV since then. If your television is labeled as �Integrated Digital Tuner,� �Digital Tuner Built-In,� �Digital Receiver,� �Digital Tuner,� �DTV,� �ATSC,� or �HDTV� then it has a built in device that will be fine after Feb. 17, 2009. If your television set is labeled as a �Digital Monitor� or �HDTV Monitor,� or as �Digital Ready� or �HDTV Ready,� this does not mean it actually contains a digital tuner. All this means is this TV is capable of handling the converter box. Thus, you still will likely need a separate set-top box which contains a digital tuner in order to view over-the-air digital programming.

Can you get HDTV over the air broadcast on a HDTV monitor with a standard TV antenna or do you need a converter?

Yes, you can use the old antenna. However, some new antennas are specially designed to better capture digital TV signals. And the direction, angle, distance, and type of digital signals in your area could influence your choice of antenna. HDTV is a picture format, not a signal format. Most likely a TV with an HDTV picture format already has a digital tuner (ATSC) rather than only an analog tuner (NTSC). However, if it is just a monitor, then you may have to attach a tuner to it, or attach a tuner to your computer, and the computer to the monitor. Actually, there is no such thing as an "HDTV" tuner. There are analog and digital tuners. All HDTV is digital, but not all digital is going to be HDTV. In Feb 2009 the U.S. Government has mandated that all broadcasters will cease transmitting in analog format and begin transmitting their signals over the air in digital format only. This signal requires an ATSC type tuner (digital) to demodulate the digital signal and display it on your television screen. All TVs manufactured for use in the U.S. from 1 Jan 2006 must have an ATSC tuner. Older TVs with the older style NTSC tuner (analog) will require a converter box to demodulate the digital signals.

Is there a difference between HDTV and HDTV Integrated in 2007?

HDTV integrated is probably just marketing talk (written on the box) for HDTV. It means the same thing. HDTV is a new format that has higher resolution, higher clarity, and is all digital. TV stations in the USA are broadcasting digitally in HDTV format, or changing over by 2009. They are not required to stick to that format when they send digital signals, but if you get an HDTV you will probably be set up to receive most broadcast stations for a long time, as some stations will be reserved for that format. Also, your TV will probably still display other formats. For example, some channels are broadcasted digitally but still in the old NTSC format that old TVs display.

What is HDTV?

HDTV stands for High Definition Television. HDTV is a digital television broadcasting standard. Since it is digital, the signals are composed of ones and zeroes -- the language of computers -- instead of waves. HDTV digital signals can contain more information that the old systems. The data can be compressed to allow up to six times more information in the same range of radio waves. Therefore, a broadcaster can send multiple data streams through the limited airwaves they are allowed to use. This is known as multicasting. The old TV standard was for 625 lines (not 525 lines across), with the television screen having a 4:3 "aspect ratio" (that is, the dimensions of the TV screen would be IN A RATIO of 4 to 3). Aspect ratio has very little to do with the broadcast standard - widescreen TV's are not necessarily HDTV (Mine's standard 625 PAL). HDTV can give display of 720 or 1080 lines, and the aspect ratio is 16:9. You can access HDTV with a digital converter on an old television. But this will not give you its full benefits. Newer models of TVs are being built with integrated receivers for HDTV.

Is the HDTV analog?

HDTV is a purely digital signal format today. There are in fact some analog standards for carrying HD component signals but they have fallen into disuse. Within the broadcast domain, HD is only digital and within the domestic market, HD sources are now using HDMI exclusively.
