This is actually the right answer. CRTs are currently the only display technology that can natively display interlaced images. LCDs and others actually have to de-interlace the image and apply digital filters to recombine a 60 fps interlaced picture into a 30 fps 'progressive' image. This is mainly due to the afterglow of the phosphor in a CRT.Originally Posted by Evi1d33d
In a nutshell, if you have an LCD HDTV (or DLP or Plasma) you should invest in some component cables at the first opportunity.
@ Wiiaretheworld - first of all, I doubt you're comparing the 40" LCD HDTV to a 40" CRT HDTV. So, if the HDTV you're on upscales the image automatically - which it should because 480 lines on a 40" TV would look atrocious - then you're comparing an upscaled version on a larger screen to an unscaled version on a smaller screen. The spatial resolution on the LCD is going to beat that of the CRT, so you will notice a difference in picture.
