Totally agree with first two paragraphs, but here's a great idea that'll never be implemented:

Let colorization begin! But have a setting on the TV (and the DIRECTV® receiver for legacy TVs) that'd remove the RGB info for those who choose to watch in its near pristine state. Then everyone would be happy. (Except the usual suspects.)


Never gonna happen. Manufacturers are not going to waste resources developing and implementing a feature where there is no interest. There isn't a demand for colorization.

C'mon. Pony up! You can either specify the link, or not. Or are you just choosing to be, uh, controversial, in not posting it?

Did you truly not read that I specified it's not going to happen??

And while you and many others don't want colorization of B+W films, many do. (Not myself, for the record.)

I don't want to.

I'd like you to be helpful.

Many? I sincerely doubt that. Colorization of film is not at all popular.

OK, after several warnings and deleted posts I am closing this thread. My apologies to the many people who contributed useful and helpful posts throughout, and it's a shame that a few bad apples precipitated this action.
