HD is Stupid.

A High Definition picture is nice, but all this extra stuff we are required to get in order to get that nice picture is driving me crazy. I'm not expert on how all this works, but I don't understand how HD comes through a standard cable line but needs a special cable (HDMI) to get the HD from the standard cable to my TV. I built an HD antenna out of coat hangers and wood which used a standard cable hook-up and the picture is beautiful. Each day I get more and more skeptical of industry and all this extra stuff they require us to buy.

we scoffed at the $70 HDMI cable they tried to get us to buy at Circuit City. The one that came with the HD cable box from the cable company works just fine.
