Yes, because most trucking companies are totally interested in spending tens of thousands of dollars to keep other people on the road safe!

With HDMI cables, if you can see the picture without visible dropouts or sparklies, the cable is working at 100%. No other cable will display a better version of that picture. You're simply wrong if you think there is a better digital cable than one that is already working. Also, while anecdote is the "singular of data" your personal anecdote isn't data. When you conflate your anecdote with data and then decide someone else's anecdote isn't data, you earn a place on my ignore list.

Not to mention the liability concerns - what happens when the TV goes on the blink and a passing vehicle has an accident as the result - talk about Black Crush

We've had a lot of evaluation with this, and it's time to consider wiping out all mosquitoes. We can do that with carefully crafted GMO. It's just not an insect that is worth having around. Mother nature will adapt, just as she always has with the millions of other species that have vanished on their own. In fact, the impact will be remarkably minor.

I think the more economical and effective solution is to paint on the back of each truck a pictogram of a car attempting to pass a truck with the caption "go ahead, make my day."

The RearEndTV trucks are absolutely real and will hit the roads later this year. For FUD distributors and Naysayers there is this: The IP56-certified signage are water- and dust-proof and were designed to maintain visual quality even under strong sunlight. It just remains to be seen if on boring long stretches of narrow roads it will be possible to order hot movies from the truck driver via CB radio.

How many here realize this thread is approaching 10 years old and we still don't have a product without substantial problems and at a reasonable cost?

According to the 1st post (which was never updated) it's been 15 years since the 1st announcement of this tech.

Abundant OTA television is what makes this country different from all others. Lets keep it this way. If you like Wi-Fi so much, OTA fits right in. After all, it is wireless.

Perhaps it might be hacked into and suddenly show a car going the wrong direction and swerving right into your lane at you head on. Aye yi yi.

Ok, but it is 4 46" LED outdoor digiital signage displays with 3,000 nits brightness (not an OLED). One of the displays by itself costs $6,000 (according to Google) so the system would probably be $25,000. I'd have to agree with Rogo that not many truckers are going to voluntarily spend that kind of money for it. Great idea though.

That's not a universal finding. Some folks are happy with current models, though the teething problems *are* being eradicated. The sole unit of Vizio's failure-to-launch flagship model (Reference) sold had significant banding itself, and how much does that cost? You've got to pay beacoup money for LCD (hello, 940c) if you want performance that compares to OLED.

LCD development began at least in the 70s so it's not unusual. Why ignore the progress? I can walk into Best Buy today and purchase one at just a little over $2k for a 55", which was nothing more than a dream 3 short years ago.

The fact that it's taken ~15 years is entirely the point.

It takes that long for every flat panel technology that has made it to become commercially viable.

OLED has crossed that threshold. But plasma is an object lesson the entire era of commercialization can be shorter than the journey. Work to be done, excitement to be had.

And a 100% certainty that if tomorrow someone comes up with something better, cheaper, faster we won't be buying it this decade.

This is what we have.

With HDMI cables, if you can see the picture without visible dropouts or sparklies, the cable is working at 100%. No other cable will display a better version of that picture. You're simply wrong if you think there is a better digital cable than one that is already working. Also, while anecdote is the "singular of data" your personal anecdote isn't data.

Not that the war is won yet, but that's an overstatement.

The 55EC9300 is a real product without 'substantial problems' and at $1400, cost is pretty reasonable (certainly compared to the Samsung 55F8500 which is the best relatively recent 55" 1080p plasma ).
