    Amazing what can be done when a government uses it's influence and muscle to force it's broadcasters to support Digital TV and of course they have a TV market that is wide open and cut throat so High Def was the obvious service to use in the attempt to claw back revenues (viewers) lost to rival broadcasters.

    The US is a huge market and once the manufacturers realised there was a need for HD hardware they went to town and prices continue to fall. The fact the the US has no BBC to dominate national TV, no SKY like organisation to dominate PAY TV and no ITV to dominate commercial TV makes most of their advances possible, we are too stagnated :(

    Hpefully Euro1080 will demonstrate there is a Europe wide desire for High Def and will see sales of suitable Panels increase which should lead to more manufacturers and broadcasters showing an interest.

    The Americans hava a history of rushing into things like this..

    Just look at the quality of their NTSC video pictures, even on DVD's if Region 2 & 1 disks have the same dosh spent on producing them, the PAL version will always be better.

    Their older programmes look horiffic!

    The BBC performed an HD recording in 1989! of Eastenders for testing etc.

    These things are being developed and researched a lot.
    The BBC's R & D dept. won an Emmy in 2001? for it's research into these things.

    And it's not like every other broadcaster in the US is HD, in fact after speaking to store clerks in the US on Holiday last year, there aren't many at all yet.

    Don't belive all the marketing hype, we'll get there, and it will be better...I hope ;-)
