Will I be able to use my VCR, DVD player and camcorder with an HDTV set?

HDTV sets are "backward compatible," meaning existing analog equipment (VCRs, DVD players, camcorders, video games, etc.) will work on digital TV sets, but not in high definition.  Their video will be displayed in the maximum resolution that is available with each product.
