HDTV and SDTV Differences
What Are the
Differences
Between
Widescreen HDTVs
and Standard TVs?
The widescreen HDTV is 1/3 wider than a standard TV. The widescreen
HDTV aspect ratio is 16:9 (compared to 4:3 for SDTV).
An HDTV uses a much finer screen resolution to create the TV picture—
1125 lines for HDTV as compared to 525 lines used in SDTV. This means
that the screen resolution for HDTV can be up to 1920x1080 pixels,
as compared to 720x480 pixels for SDTV.
In the United States, HDTV is always broadcast with digital signals. SDTV
is currently broadcast in both digital and analog. However, HDTV and digital
SDTV do not use the same digital signal.
Generally, all HDTV-ready monitors or integrated HDTV sets are capable of
supporting an SDTV 480i or 480p signal. Not all HDTV monitors support
both 720p and 1080i HDTV signals. For instance, some plasma screens
only support 720p.
What Are Screen
Resolutions?
You want to set up the 3250HD to provide your TV with the best picture size
and format that your TV supports.
Your cable service provider broadcasts programming in SDTV or HDTV
format. The screen resolution that your TV supports determines how the
program will look on your TV screen.
For this reason, the 3250HD needs to know the screen resolution that is
best for your TV. If the 3250HD is not set up to provide video in the proper
screen resolution, you will see a black screen or a distorted picture when
you turn on your TV.
The 3250HD provides video in the following screen resolutions.
8
SDTV Screen
Resolutions
•
480 lines, interlaced (480i)
•
480 lines, progressive (480p)
HDTV Screen
Resolutions
•
1080 lines, interlaced (1080i)
(This is the default setting for the 3250HD.)
•
720 lines, progressive (720p)
HDTV and SDTV Differences
Connection Options
There are several brands and models of HDTVs in the marketplace. The
features and connectors are not the same on all brands and models.
Therefore, you have several options for connecting your TV to entertainment
devices. The connection option you choose depends on the type of TV you
have and the entertainment devices you want to connect to your TV. For the
best results, read this section to learn more about HDTV and SDTV
connection options before you begin to connect the 3250HD to your
entertainment devices.

Some HDTVs have a DVI or a High-Definition
Multimedia Interface (HDMI®) connector. The HDMI
connector provides both a digital video and audio
connection. The DVI connector provides only a digital
video connection. The HDMI connector provides the
optimal connection to an HDTV with either an HDMI
input or a DVI input.
Note: If your HDTV has an HDMI connector, you will
need a DVI-to-HDMI adaptor, and you will also need
a separate audio connection.
DVI
Some HDTVs have only RGB connectors. If you have
one of these HDTVs, you may need an RGB adaptor.
Check with your cable service provider for information
about receiving or purchasing an RGB adaptor.
Some HDTVs have a 1394 port, also called a FireWire.
The 1394 port is a high-speed connector for electronic
devices such as digital VCRs. (Not available on the
Loop-Through model.)
The S-Video Out and Video Out connectors on
entertainment devices deliver standard definition
video signals to the TV.

information about screen burn-in.
To avoid screen
burn-in, do not
display the same
fixed images on
your HDTV screen
for extended periods
of time.

Frequently Asked Questions About HDTV
Are Local TV
Stations
Broadcasting in
HDTV?
Many local TV stations are transmitting digital signals. However,
transmitting a digital signal does not mean transmitting an HDTV signal.
Some stations are using the new bandwidth to broadcast several
standard-definition channels. Most stations however, once they begin
broadcasting in digital, are offering HD content from their parent network
(for example, CBS, ABC, NBC, Fox, WB, UPN, PBS).
Why Are Some
HDTVs 4:3 Aspect
Ratio and Others
16:9?
The aspect ratios differ because the television industry manufactures both
standard and wide-screen HDTVs to appeal to consumer viewing
preferences.
•
On wide-screen HDTVs, the programming is displayed on the full
screen.
•
On standard HDTVs, the programming is displayed in letterbox format
in the middle of the screen. (There are bars surrounding the picture.)
A standard-screen HDTV has
a 4:3 aspect ratio. The screen
is 4 units wide for every 3 units
tall.
——— 4 ———
A wide-screen HDTV is one-third
wider than a standard-screen
HDTV. The screen is 16 units
wide for every 9 units tall.
