I have come to the conclusion that, as yet, Digital Radio has not delivered very many of it's promises. As whoever 'they' arealways says "Don't believe the hype".
What about High Definition TV then? Well, I had my first glimpse of what it will be like when my friend brought round his XBOX 360 and we plugged it in to my HDTV compatible LCD TV.
A simple comparison of the same game running on my xbox and his xbox 360 soon showed just how much better HDTV is going to be. Overall there was a real clarity jump that was so obvious, then when you looked at the images in detail, you could soon see why. Everything was sooo sharp and clear that things we hadn't seen before were now there to be seen. Even effects like smoke and fire seemed to work so much better on HDTV.
I look forward to all TV transmissions going across to HD and digital; then we'll really struggle to tell the difference between TV and reality.....
