That's true. If the cable and satellite companies started using something like MVC, higher resolutions, and much higher bitrates (necessitating much greater video processing power) then that would require all new HD 3D set top boxes.
You think these guys are going to go with higher quality HD 3D and all new expensive decoder boxes in the field or more of a $$ stream with minimal investment? Hmmm...
However, I have my doubts about the real-world consumer broadcast 3D PQ on these new channels anyway, irrespective of the not-for-consumer's-eyes demos they did at CES. They haven't met an HD channel yet they haven't compressed to the nth degree. Some standard HD channels right now look like complete ass... and the big boys don't seem to be in any hurry to fix that any time soon, or ever.
Listen up, studios! Just say "NO" to DNR and EE!!
