Sorry to start off with such a bunch of alphabet soup, but it seems unavoidable, when trying to make sense of the subject of digital television. In the USA, terrestrial digital video broadcasts are transmitted in 8VSB-modulated ATSC-encoded MPEG-2 transport streams, containing high-definition content in progressive 720p (1280x720) and interlaced 1080i (1920x1080) formats. I'm still not even sure what the official name for this stuff is, so let's just call it HDTV.
