my brother has a 36" sony xbr hd tv. i cannot tell any difference with hd and non-hd programming. i have a crt rptv and it is night/day different. my new plasma is night/day different. to tell you the truth, i cannot recall seeing any other hd crt tv's. maybe my memory is just fading. anyone here care to share their hd crt tv opinions? do they look better with hd content or not?
