    If one had cable and wanted to upgrade to HD cable and I have a satellite dish, what do the techies change in regards to equipment when they come out to the house?

    thx

    You simply get a digital HD cable box. With HDMI connection.

    Yes sir, you get a new box (HD Reciever)and a new cable (HDMI). End of story.

    Your provider will get them both for you, assuming you upgrade your package to HD programming.

    Regardless of what you have (Satellite or Cable) they are going to install some type of box that comes with a monthly fee probably but has the following outputs: coaxial, RCA, component and HDMI. The new boxes should be equipped with HDMI output(s) and to get the best possible picture and sound you will need to run a HDMI cable from their box to your TV. If you have any more questions let me know.

    I've read quite a few articles that contend that you will receive just as good of a picture using component (y,pb,pr) as you do with HDMI. IMO, I would just save your money and not by the cable (unless your new receiver comes with one).
