Default Re: HD DVD about to fight back...

No question stand alone bluray players are a mitigated disaster at this point. I doubt we will see 1440p anytime soon. First it would need to be approved by the ATSC and I believe 720p and 1080i are it. These 1080 sets will be with us for quite some time. Close to 2 years ago analog signals were supposed to be cut off. We are behind on that. Look at how long our NTSC technology has been with us. It was invented in the early 40's, 41 I believe and 66% of US homes still use it today. I would worry about 100% of US homes an HDTV before a super duper HDTV. There were 480p sets made in the early 90's, but the picture was so poor and soft they flopped.
