Actually there is demand for babylon 5 in sd, the dvd sales were decent, but not enough to drive a full reconstruction effort to rebuild all the cg for the series. no one really has the numbers here so far, but i think you are giving them too little credit, its clear that the studios are cherry picking which shows are worth the conversion to hd, the case has to be made on a case by case basis. you say the bluray covers it all, i have no idea if it does or not, but its clear when there isnt' enough market demand this stuff doesn't happen. syndication is nice i'm sure, but pay tv is a shrinking market under pressure, i doubt the deals are lucrative as they were, and are probably only going to shrink going into the future.
