I would only add that it would be nice that any simulcasts would at least be 16x9/480p and NOT be NTSC up-converts. To be more specific, digital through the entire pipe and not NTSC camara to digital to ultra-low Mpeg-2 bitrate Sat Feed to 480i digital to NTSC to 480p digital, etc. Just straight Digital Camara to final transmitted Mpeg-2 bitrate to sat. feed to simulcast transmission.
I know that flies in the face of maximizing the bandwidth of distribution channels (ala satellite), but bigger TV's mean I can see all those artifacts my 27" didn't show (well, at least without looking real hard).
One can dream, eh?
