    I already have an HDTV compatible TV, and I was wondering if there was anything else I need besides the reciever to watch HDTV? Do I have to pay my cable company extra for HDTV services? Can anyone recommend a good HDTV reciever? I have cablevision for my cable company, thanks...

    depending on where you are located cablevision is offering 4 HD channels right now for no extra charge assuming you have the IO digital package. If you don't have digital you'll have to sign up for it and request and HD box. You can get MSG, HBO, showtime, and fox sports in HD. Also make sure you hook the box up to the tv using the component inputs/outputs.

    If I got their box, would I need to still buy a seperate HDTV reciever? How much does the cablevision box go for? Thanks!

    no the box is the HD receiver, but it will not allow you to receive OTA HD channels, only the digital channels through your cable line. If you want to get the broadcast HD channels you'll need a seperate box for that plus an antenna. cablevision charges something like $4 per month for the box and then $10 per month additional if you don't already have digital cable, plus you must scribe to regular HBO to get it in HD, and the same for showtime and the others.

    you need an HDTV black box which isnt really made yet.. Basically stop stealing shit. If you want more HD channels pay something out. Otherwise unless cable companys and sat companys see the demand for HD content we will be stuck with the same shit..

    look into sat tv instead though. 90% of the receivers have an antenna input so you can get local signals as well as the HD Sat signals.
