    Typical MPAA propaganda. Most users want their HDTV!!! Its hard to improve on PQ with down-rezzing.

    Welcome Ken! I agree - once you have HD, you can't go back I guess that if all of this happens, at least I'll still have OTA to watch, and can scale my dvds up to higher resolution than what this down-rezzed cr*p is going to be.

    Thanks, Mark.

    I spend most of my Internet time on AVSforum, but couldn't pass up the great info in this forum.

    There is a good chance that I'll get both a721 and a 921 if I don't churn to DirecTV by then.

    If Dish doesn't pick up DiscoveryHD, that just may happen.

    kelliot, you must remember the no matter how mellifluous the comments of Charlie (and Dave) may be, they are really just bilgewater.

    don't ask. ask www.webster.com or www.dictionary.com. I had to find somewhere to use the word and that seemed like as good of post as any. Too save you the trouble:

    Pronunciation: me-'li-fl&-w&s, m&-

    Etymology: Middle English mellyfluous, from Late Latin mellifluus, from Latin mell-, mel honey + fluere to flow; akin to Gothic milith honey, Greek melit-, meli

    2 : filled with something (as honey) that sweetens
    - mel·lif·lu·ous·ly adverb

    Mark - :lol:

    Ken - Thanks for sticking around here! Glad you like it. I also spend a lot of time over at AVS, as do the other admins and mods here. I usually read and post in the HTPC forum, and the 4 HDTV forums over there.

    There's talk going on over at AVS Forums in the DVD forum about how after watching true HD that even DVD's are becoming unwatchable, and we all know how much better DVD's look than DBS does on a HD display.

    As the market moves more toward digital sets, E* & D* both need to allocate more bandwidth to each channel or people will drop them in droves. The current picture on DBS is not acceptable on a HD set.

    When I switch from local OTA HD (or SD) to DBS I have to rub my eyes and try to focus but it doesn't help, the picture is just too damned soft.

    Darrell, "not acceptable on a HD set", it's not even acceptable on an SD set anymore!
