I can't tell you how many people I know that have recently bought a new t.v. that have also purchased a blu ray player or hd dvd player to get the most from the new t.v. It is just a matter of time.
I will disagree with this point - most HD sets are still 720p/1080i. Newer sets are 1080p but how many average Joes are going to change a set they have had for only 1 year (probrably still paying for it)? The buy in point is low - only on the geek side (any PC owner should jump at a BD player now - I'm trying to think like the aveage Joe). Other than that you make some good points.
