In the defense of old people, I just turned 75 and for the record, first got HD 10 years ago on one HD RPTV in 2003, and HD on all four of my new flat-panel displays when I moved into my new home in 2008. No more vacuum tubes for me. So long, see ya!

I'm 65 and I bought a Sharp Aquas 37" HD set in 2008, it's still going. Two years later I bought a 24" Sharp 720 from Sears & died two years later.

Note there are thousands of hotels and apartment buildings that use SD DISH (and DirecTV) receivers for their head ends, either individually or via "smartbox" or other such systems.

Well, one advantage I noticed about SD channels available, when a storm knocks out the HD signal, it auto tunes to the SD channel of the same. This way your programming is not lost.
