I am surprised to read in this article that coaxial cable connections are considered the lower rung of video quality.
Actually, that would explain a problem I’ve been having. Some months ago I bought a high definition flat screen television. I have satellite but a non-high definition receiver.
Therefore, I connect the TV to the receiver by using coaxial cable. (Actually I think that I have component cable too, but I haven’t messed with that).
Long story short, I haven’t been too pleased with the picture quality. It certainly looks like nothing comparable to the video quality I saw in the store.
It’s not terrible, but sometimes the picture gets a little blurred as it tries to stretch those signals into high definition. I have options on my remote where I can basically turn off the high definition, but this results in cropping the picture from top to bottom and left to right.
I guess I’ll have to bite the bullet and get a high definition receiver, and an HDMI cable.
