Getting an HDTV set can be a real positive step in your enjoyment of your home entertainment center. That's because high definition TV sets have screens with wider aspect ratios than conventional TV sets and they often have narrower profiles than conventional TV sets (at least if they're Plasma screens or LCD displays) for a more stylish look. However, there are some additional things that you need to do in order to get full enjoyment from your new HDTV set. Specifically, you need HDTV programming, an Cable HDTV receiver to decode it, and a sound system that can take advantage of the Dolby Digital 5.1 Surround Sound that's part of the HDTV standard.
