I've got a 2006 32in [bleep]. I've got more Dish than I could ever want.

I've two of each local channel that boasts of HDTV.

Channel 2 and channel 9001 look the same to me.

And why do I care if the CBS news is HDTV or not?

You probably have the hd signal coming up but that does not matter unless you have an hdtv (television). To determine if you have a hdtv do an Internet search on the make and model of your tv to find out.

RE: How does one know if one has HDTV?

I found the manual to my [bleeping] TV and there is no reference to HDTV so apparently casey_wa is correct and I do not have it.

Still begging the question, what might I watch where I might want any higher definition than I now have?

RE: How does one know if one has HDTV?

Sports, nature shows, concerts, home improvement shows, travel shows, auto racing, movies.

RE: How does one know if one has HDTV?

Sports, nature shows, and movies look much better in HDTV. Of course, with a 32" tv, unless you are sitting rather close you will rarely see much difference. Once you get up to 42" plus, an HDTV really starts to pay off.

Thanks oskiebabu. I was curious if size might have something to do with it.
