Hi, this isn't strictly computer-related, but I'm sure somebody here can answer my question. I don't know much about HDTV, but I believe there are 2 HD resolutions: 1280x720 and 1920x1080. WXGA screens are 1366x768, which is a higher resolution that the first HD one, so is WXGA classed as HD as well?
Thanks

Resolution or pixel-count alone does not make the picture HD as in HDTV. Other factors must come into play, most notably the number of horizontal lines which is currently 1080 for true HDTV reception.

At the moment I do not have any HD input sources. Will I see any improvement with a WXGA or HD TV?
What resolution is standard definition TV broadcast in anyway - 640x480? If so, what is the point of WXGA TVs, if they do not support HD, and offer no improvement with the standard resolution?
