Who was not watching the months of public service announcements? You need a Digital-to-Analog (ATSC-to-NTSC) converter box to receive over-the-air (OTA) signals in most parts of the country. You do not need one for most cable and satellite box outputs--they are NTSC or HDMI. Some low-power, typically religious, stations are still analog. Note OTA may be high definition (HD) or standard resolution (SD) but will be digital.
To get HD on your HD set you must have OTA (HD TV tuner, not converter), cable (QAM TV receiver), satellite (HDMI or 5-wire RCA),or Blu-Ray with HDMI or RCA.
Yes, it is HD TV ready but you must have a set top box from your cable or dish company that provides a Hi Def signal. The inputs must also be connected with the YRB cable. Only certain channels on my box are HD. The screen is so large that HD isn't nearly as impressive as some of the smaller models but it is still HD. I also have the 53FDX10B.
It seems to me that you are watchin an analog signal on a digital HD TV, the analog signal is has a standard resolution of 720x576 for NTSC (American Signal) and 720x480 for PAL (European Signal).
It could be worth to go contact your cable company, they can hook you up with a digital receiver which gives a better signal and might even have a HD Signal (this means it has a HD-Ready 1280x720 of Full HD 1920x1080 resolution).
If you really want to use your LCD TV on his max this is really worth considering
First of all your system, tv, must be able to perform your request, Secondly, your service must be able to provide the 1080i or 1080p, not all service's provide the service with the equipment they provided you (your box). Check with your provider.
On any High Def TV, the reciever you need for this set, which does not have a HD receiver in it, is half the equation. Most HD channels have some HD content mixed with SD content on the same channel. SD content on HD signal from cable or satellite tends to be slightly blocky due to the native signal resolution and the resolution of HD (1080i/p or 720i/p).
