HDTV sales continue to boom at the retail and custom level to the tune of over 1,000,000 sets per month, according to recent Consumer Electronics Association reports. HDTV is the home theater industry’s “killer application,” providing an outrageously good video experience on TVs that are ultra-thin. The problem is that a DTV (DTVs are TVs that can reproduce HD content but don’t necessarily have tuners built into them) rarely have HD tuners built into them even at the highest price points.

With HDTV sets selling at the million per month rate and no signs of slowing down anytime soon, consumers are quickly learning their desire for HDTV content is far greater than the current supply. Options for HDTV content often include either digital cable or satellite and a terrestrial antenna. Cable has its advantages in many markets, because it can reliably provide local HDTV feeds without the need for often clunky antenna. However, millions of early adopters, as well as HDTV newbies, flock to the satellite providers (DirecTV, Dish Network and upstart VOOM) for their content because of their large offerings of HDTV programming, HD-DVR equipment and access from practically every location in the United States.

In a recent article by Eric Hellweg in Technology Review, the topic of new legislation is in front of the current U.S. “lame duck” Congress, addressing a number of piracy and media issues that relate to how audio/video enthusiasts record and use TV. According to the article, there are a handful of bills being considered right now that aim to make recording a movie in a theater and/or distributing it via peer-to-peer networks a felony. Since most reasonable home theater enthusiasts are willing to buy a DVD of a film through legal means, this might not be a landmark piece of legislation. However, there are other bills that go much further, including one that makes it illegal to fast-forward through parts of films or even to fast-forward through commercials on your TiVo or other DVR systems.
