do we need a new television?Posted: September 5, 2012
There was a news article some months back that talked about the sales of high-definition digital televisions. It said that sales were flat in the previous year and consisted mostly of people replacing their existing digital TVs with the latest model.
I got a chuckle from that, because we’re not even on our first high-def digital television. We still have two old-fashioned analog TV’s in the house that work perfectly fine.
Well, mostly. For a few years now I’ve noticed that on our local PBS station the left and right side of the picture has been getting cut off. I’m seeing that more and more frequently now on other channels as well. A recent San Francisco Giants game was on Fox, and the entire left half of the score box in the upper left of the screen was cut off.
We can manage well enough until then.
