Televisions must also be HD compatible for viewers to notice the improvement in picture quality.

This is misinformation!

SD screens are able to benifit in getting component or svideo out vs composite, there is no limiting of bandwidth in the analog video signals like you have to do when sending them over the air, which is even visible on a modulated RF source vs an actual offair source.

There will be the whole picture with no stupid cropping/blackbars so it will fill the screen correctly if you have a widescreen.

No noise/ghosting.
