......because I only recently purchased an HDTV - - I would have had very little input earlier. I also happen to be a Cox subscriber and am more interested in Cox related HDTV issues/questions. I've noticed Norfolk is not the only area with a generic HDTV forum PLUS others for specific providers. Why merge? I am not trying to be an SA but I am trying to understand what benefit you see in merging these groups. It may make it easier for those of you who are interested in all of the other HDTV related chatter (direct TV, OTA, hardware, etc) but it makes it more difficult for those of us who are interested in Cox related issues.
