I thought his comments on not being able to play SD DVD's was especially harmful given that in my mind and the limited amount of HD programming, DVD playback is one of the best uses for an HDTV. It's not HDTV but with a good display, a good player, and proper calibration, it's close.
I also thought that his comment about only 6 percent of programming is HD. That's true if one looks at all the channels but that channel total includes many channels that many of us never watch. I have about 50 channels on my favorites list which brings the percentage up to 25.
