I have been commissioned by an anonymous chiefsplanet member to put a poll about HDTV up for your input. I think that this anonymous member plans to trade the collected data for some drugs, but I'm not sure.

Anyway, poll forthcoming in an amazing 2600 pixel format.

Thanks bud...the thread kind of sailed through.

I think I am void of any right to claim I have a life.

Where is the "My TV is HDTV but I never bought the HDTV Tuner for it." Option

I had to vote "I don't know" on the poll. I'm pretty sure that none of my TVs are HDTV, but I'm not positive, and a couple of them are moderately new (less than five years).

I don't plan on buying a new TV for quite some time.

It was cut in the inital draft. My client didn't think anyone would be that weird.

If I ever had some money I sure would look at upgrading, but have other things that are more important right now.

Your client would be wrong on at least two accounts.

Probably most of the TVs bought in the last two years are HD- compatible, but don't yet have HD tuners.

that is cool. Since that week I have tried every week, didn't know about it before that, but haven't been able to score even 200 points yets, and I could really use one of those new TV's.

I typed it 17 minutes ago. It apparently took you 16 minutes to read all of the way through it.

The truth is, my client's not very bright.

I have a projector that isn't true high def, but I will take its image over just about any HDTV you can find when it is fed an HD signal.

I guess with my limited options because Rain Man says I am weird I had to vote that I havee an HDTV though in truth that is a misrepresentation without the tuner.


Perhaps Rain Man did not know that basically every TV sold in the last two years is HDTV ready and only needs a Tuner. So tons of people will own an HDTV set but never actually watch HDTV

Metro,

Its late, and I am beat, so I apologize for the lack of structure or grammar. Here is a general strategy that I tend to use. Because of that x2 tag player, a little bit of luck is needed but I hope this helps!

Try to go with Peyton and McNabb at QB (if you need to save a few bucks, go with Trent or Brees). Muhammad, Bennett and Stokley at receiver (or mix receivers according to prices). For running backs, choose backs based on the matchup and strength of the running game. TJ Duckett is usually cheap. Goings also a good choice and to save some dough, Dorsey Levens is usually good for one score but only take if you are approaching the cap. For TEs, take Tony, Gates, or the matchup. Kickers, choose the cheapest that arent punters. Def is a wildcard. I like to go with the Bengals, but they havent been too hot lately. It seems the cheap D's always score above-average points, so I tend to stay cheap.

I score 280ish on average. 330pts+ usually wins a decent prize so if you score 280ish, eventually your x2 player should give you that extra boost to place.

Technically, I didn't say you were weird.

Actully, the past few weeks I have had a VBulliten plug in that takes my thoughs and automatically makes posts out of them.

I have an HDTV but no tuner. I got it mainly for DVDs. They do look fantastic.

I don't have a HDTV yet, but I'm looking at them. I just got done spending thousands on the surround sound system. I heard that eventually, all broadcasts will be in HD format and a HDTV will be required in every household. Is this true and when will it happen?
