OK. So HDTV is pretty widespread and does give access to great channels and shows. I have queries. Now, can I watch HDTV channels through an HD tuner on a regular CRT (cathode ray tube) TV? As CRTs are capable of displaying any definition, I think it would be OK, no? Say I do get an HD TV. The problem I hear with HD TVs is that they display standard definition poorly - like if you want to watch standard def channels or a VHS. Then I am told that CRTs provide deeper colour and true black, LCD and Plasma do not. CRTs also have a longer lifespan, but use more power than LCD or Plasma. The mind boggles, so lets focus on the first item: can I watch HDTV channels through an HD tuner on a regular CRT (cathode ray tube) TV? - if not, why? If so, why? Thanks a bunch in advance.
