    Check this out!!!

    Is there such a thing as going too far? Near holographic picture quality I can live with, but how many people are ready (wiilling?) to accommodate 22.2 channel sound! :eek:

    Not past a certain point no, but we haven't reached it with current HD.

    From what i understand current High Definition standards are only a quarter ( some people have said one third ) of the actual quality of a 35mm film print, therefore i think theres a long long way to go before we get anywhere near that but i think the article would suggest they are striving for detail levels of above 35mm film.

    I think it's a lot nearer than you think. The BBC has been producing a significant amount of its programming in Hi-Def for the past few years, getting ready for the switch on.

    Considering that they plan to be 100% Hi-Def by 2010, the launch is imminent.

    See the following...

    Let's just hope someone reminds them that the world cup is only 10 months away, then.
