    I've just spent a week of my life watching a ring of cobalt blue LED's spin, hoping against hope that the spining blue ring was about to make it all O.K. I figured hey... bring on the plate, I'm ready to carve out some potato sculpture...

    I got the HD channels and would like to thank untold thousands of people whose hard work and remarkable inventiveness and creativity for the past 80 years that have made this long journey possible!

    Millions of 1s and 0s per second traveling a roundtrip of over 40,000 miles into space and back, and WOW! I am awestruck by this accomplishment!

    1928 The Federal Radio Commission issues first television station license.
    1937 CBS begins TV development
    1941 FCC releases NTSC standard for Black & White TV
    1950 FCC approves color standard for color TV
    1962 Telstar launched- First Satellite to carry TV broadcasts
    1967 Most TV broadcasts in color
    1972 Half the TV sets in homes are color
    1973 Giant Screen Tvs are introduced
    1983 First Direct Broadcast satellite begins service
    1994 DirecTV begins programming services
    1996 FCC approves ATSC’s digital HDTV standard
    2002 DirecTV begins first HD channel (HDnet)
    2005 DirecTV begins first HD local into local service

    September 26, 2007- The new era of 100 plus national HDTV channels begins!

    Two dish antennas met on a roof, fell in love and got married. The ceremony wasn’t much, but the HD reception was excellent!

    Up early, cup of joe and some breakfast. Low and behold new HD stations, this can't get any better. Couple of hours later knock at the door, my new Sony 52" XBR4. Who said it can't get any better!

    Does TBS actually broadcast in HD? I've never seen HD programming on it.
