Uisce's Configuration (was: AV Forums)

Alright, just spent my first two hours researching HDTV, etc.  My mind is mush.  I expect I'll have to invest 100+ hours just to learn the basics.  It's gonna get ugly.

Damn you aske.

Thanks.  I'll take you up on that.  At this point I'm trying to figure out the questions.  When I have those I'll start working on answers.  Perhaps if you have on offer the traditional GolfHos discount (99.9% off) I'll engage you for your services.   Wink

Interesting, related story.

In general, HDTVs were the most desired gift among all population subgroups, with a resounding 35 percent of respondents saying they craved one of the pricey eye-catching gadgets. Interestingly, Solutions Research report that only 2 percent said they also intend to get a HD box from their cable or satellite company, and 6 percent a Blu-ray or HD-DVD high-definition DVD player.

Why would you shell out big bucks for a HDTV and settle for nothing but SD programming?  Seriously, that's crazy isn't it?  Maybe I'm missing something.

Then they stretch the SD signals to fill the wide screen, throwing off the aspect ratio.  I hate that.

most of the buyers only budget for the tv, not content and peripherals.  they want to be 'in'.  then they see other similar buyers watching SD on an HDTV, and think that's as good as it needs to be.
