Video transcription

Rokosz, your digital lifestyle expert here with some information on how to get the most out of your HDTV. Well, glad you're taking a look at this because honestly most people buy excellent monitors or televisions and then don't go the extra step to actually see it in its full version. So ways that you want to do to make sure that you're getting the absolute most out of it, step one is taking a look at your input signals OK? If you want to get the most out of your movies, you want to get a Blu-Ray player which is basically an HD DVD or a Blu-Ray DVD player and that will make sure that you're seeing your movies the very best way. If you're dealing with cable TV, you want to make sure that you're getting a pure digital cable package. Believe it or not for local channels, a HDTV antenna, back to antennas on the top of your house, but special ones for HDTV, you're going to get your best picture there. Why? Well because to get it up to the DSS satellites and down to your TV or even over your cable lines, they've got to be compressed. Same thing with the Internet. With broadcasting HDTV, they don't have to be compressed. So believe it or not, going back to a stick in the air is one of your best ways to go there. If you've got a video game system, make sure its an HD video game system or if its a Wii, it can be sort of upgraded you can buy a special cable to make it more HDTV. Second thing is use quality cables alright? They seem surprisingly expensive for one cable to go from here you're paying 50, 100 bucks. Don't get ridiculous and pay 100 or 200 dollars for the cable. Now if you've got a 15 or 20,000 thousand dollar monitor, maybe a good idea. But here, something in the 20 dollar range depending on the type. Use the best connectors. If you're going in from it and has it and it has component, which we're using here with the PR, the PB and the Y or the R, G and B, the red, blue and green, or HDMI is a great way to do it. That takes audio and video digitally at the same way. Good cables and that they're being hooked up in the proper way. So those are some ways to get the very best. Make sure whatever you're watching or doing is in high definition. Make sure you've got a good quality cable and you're hooking it up to the right place.
