Novelty. I'm not saying HFR will be an abject failure, but the first movie shot in it, just like the first ones to be released on whatever 4K disc format comes out, the first few on Netflix in 4K,...

They have the same issues that cable/satellite channels do, as 80% of their viewers, and virtually 100% of the viewers who will be early adopters of 4K TV are getting their local channels through...

Except that they don't have the bandwidth to do it with linear broadcast, at least for now. With SDV, it would be possible on cable, but if Comcast gobbles up TWC and doesn't want to do SDV, then...

The EDGE Green has a 3D mode, but it doesn't do any processing when the 3D mode is enabled. I've sent 3D video to my Sharp LE8470U while sending audio to my AVR, so I would think it would work with a...

They do when there's enough bandwidth to do so, which there often isn't to stuff all the garbage that the OTA broadcasters and cable providers want to. 1080i and 720p use basically the same...

No. I'm sure the broadcast engineers are a lot more like me than the average idiot who can't tell the difference.

Yeah, that's basically right, it's just not actually Ethernet at that point, it's just CAT-5/6 cable. Ethernet is something ELSE you could run over a CAT-5/6 cable.

Of course they do, but they don't have to follow anyone else's rules for doing so. I think they are looking for a certain look more than anything, and it fits well with their content, given that they...

Interesting history behind frame rates. Seeing how frame rate affects things has shown up a lot more in the past few years. It's interesting how some TV shows shoot at 24p to give the film like...

At least for kids movies, there are a lot of built-in DVD players in cars, and portable ones. That market seems to drive the "combo pack" sales.

Except that most people aren't even going to be able to see the difference with UHD. As it is, many people find cable or lower quality streaming "good enough".

Around $3500 for the current setup, not including furniture, where I spent at least another $1000-$1500. It's a modest setup, a 60" Sharp and an Onkyo 7.1 THX HTIB, but it's good for now. When I am...

Yeah, if they are doing 19mbps and it looks bad, shame on them. Over the last few months, Comcast has actually gotten their ~11mbps MPEG-2 to look pretty darn good. Which is freaky, given how little...

That's good. Yeah, they really need to finish the 860mhz rebuilds, and do H.264, and then they would be in great shape. I had a tech come out one time to look at an internet problem, and his comments...

And we need new standards why? The 720p/1080i system we have today sort of works. And it would work just fine if the broadcasters would cut out the vampire sub-channel bull****.

No way you're going to see them from Blu-Ray. Highly unlikely on Netflix SuperHD too, and that's roughly 1/4 of the typical Blu-ray bitrate.
