    So I'm watching some HLN Zimmerman trial coverage and, for some reason, HLN isn't in High Def on my cable.

    Anyway, the picture is just horrible. I flipped around and it was the same on all the regular channels.

    I haven't watched anything but high def since it came out so I can't really remember but is this what it was always like?

    White people problems?

    hook it up to a CRT and it doesn't look so bad.

    it's also not quite so noisy, seems to hide the flaws more.
