  • Yeah, I remember I got really suspicious over here in the US when the digital craze began and I was simultaneously hearing "digital is great because it's better quality" and "digital is great because it lets us fit in more channels." Turns out the quality was not that much better than just having a dedicated cable or satellite pipe and the only real advantage was the compression that achieved more channels. And of course, I knew immediately that compression did not mean better quality, although it might still be satisfactory to me. But marketing is marketing, and so they'll sell it any way they can. And quality is somewhat subjective and varies from application to application, so I think they can get away with it. But I'd far rather get my choice rather than move by government mandate.

    Today we don't actually get a television signal at all any more. No more satellite, and we just sold our last TV with rabbit ears.
