Advertisements So logic dictates that the OP scrap his existing equipment and spend a lot of money acquiring all new equipment to meet your standards. Plus possibly increasing his cable bill. Either that or do without. That's not logical, just stupid. Your "logic" apparently consists of the following: "Once HD became available, I realized that SD is unwatchable. I cannot believe I put up with this crap all of those years. Since I find it unacceptable, it must be unacceptable to everyone. Therefore, everyone should acquire HD equipment. All SD channels should be eliminated. Especially those that are carrying programming that has no need for HD, like old movies and TV shows. They're just cluttering up the airwaves and using up cable bandwidth. Bandwidth that could be used for more of the stuff that I like."
