In a decade, we'll probably be going through the same thing again with Ultra HD http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ultra_HD


Might be why DIRECTV is so aggressively looking at the new range of satellite to home frequencies. They will need it :)

Do you think there's any need to go beyond UHD? How many typical households REALLY have need for a Tv large enough to take advantage of it? lol Speaking of which, what size screen WOULD you need to actually see an advantage over regular HD?

Since I want my next screen to be 140" (or larger), I suspect I would be able to tell--though by then I'll likely need cataract surgery as well. :)

As for beyond UHD... I suspect it will be UH3D and look so solid you can't really tell...

20 minutes would take 4TB of storage? Better get those stacks of 2TB Raid Drives ready to plug into your new DVR.
