If you are *really* committed to HDTV and thing it is truly "The next big thing" then you should be willing to put your money where you mouth is . . . investing. What HDTV related stocks are available? Laser Pacific Studios(LPAC) is one . . . they are a digital post-production studio. Silicon Image (SIMG) is another . . . they make the DVDO line doubler & the Si503 chip used in that line-doubler and some progressive scan DVD players.

Can some people suggest some other HDTV (or DVD) stocks?

How about STMicroelectronics (STM)? They have the new STi7200 HDTV chip they just introduced. Also they seem to be the stongest of the semis.

I dunno . . . but I only care about what happens going forward. Right now, the DVDO & Si503 chip are probably just a tiny slice of their revenue.

Agreed.
That was in the past.
Sorry to bring that up. That was negative and we need to stay positive.

I spent $600 on the iScan Plus, from Silicon Image, 18 months ago and the thing died a couple weeks ago.

All they offered me was a $150 rebate on a new iScan, which goes for around $700, stating that mine would be "too costly" to repair.

If the average lifespan of a product they sell is 18 months, I doubt they'll be in business very long. I wouldn't sink a penny into their company.

I think the Star Wars he is referring to is Episode II.
Last I heard George Lucas does not want ny of the Star Wars flicks broadcast or available in a "digital mastertype" format.

Most recent movies are availble on DVD or PPV within 12 months these days. Followed by Premium cable or Network.
