The reason SD TV shows are discussed here is because there is no other forum
on AVS for those discussions, in spite of D-6500's strange insistence to the contrary. Perhaps he should consult the forum directory and see if he can find one.
As stated above, only HD shows are discussed in the HDTV Programming Forum. This Forum is the default location for any other television show that anyone wants to discuss; and that's AVS policy like it or not. Since there are typically only one or two such threads active at any given time, it's hard to understand how someone would find their search for technical info hindered or "the continuum of technical discussions" disrupted (huh?). Here's an idea: just skip over the threads you're not interested in, and since there are only two of those, it shouldn't be that great a hardship. Let's all try to buck up here.
