OK... so, its obvious to see the price difference. go to the store and check out the TVs and the ones labled "HDTV" as opposed to "HDTV Monitor" or "HDTV Ready" are substantially more expensive. ive been trying to get some reading done on it, but i havent quite had my questions answered, so i was hoping that some of you on here might know. with HDTV, as i understand it, you can tune into HDTV programming over-the-air. thats nice, but i dont care about that. now, with HDTV ready/monitors, you cant do this. they say you need a set-top-converter or some such thing. Now... if i, say, buy one of these and subscribe to HD service from either comcast or directv or something, will the box provided by that company suffice, or do i need another box in addition to it? so, basically, does a cable box satisfy that set-top-conversion requirement... aside from that confusion, is there any other good reason why the HDTV monitors are priced so much cheaper?
