At least they are thinking about a solution to the obsolescense issue. Plus they are not giving me any BS that these are HiScan sets and not HDTV. Lets see what kind of announcement they make.


See my original letter below the message from Sony.


From Sony:


In an effort to protect substantial investments in properties broadcast

as

HDTV the 5c copy protection method has been agreed to by several

entities.

This copyright protection does not apply to all HDTV broadcasts, only

those

the presenter wishes to protect. It does not prohibit viewing the

material,

it does downgrade it however.

The implementation of the 5c copyright protection was decided on after

the

design, manufacture, and sale of several of our HDTV devices. SONY is

looking into what can be done and we expect an official answer as soon

as

it is developed which we will share with our customers. In the mean

time

please enjoy your HDTV and remember all HDTV broadcasting will not

include

5c copyright protection.

Thank you for your interest in SONY products and services.

MESSAGE: I purchased a 53HS10 last month as an HDTV capable TV. Now I

hear

that with the new 5C technology my TV will no longer be able to

transmit

full 1080i resolution because of copyright issues and will only

transmit

down resolved signals.

I expect Sony to upgrade my TV so it stays HDTV compatible and

transmits

1080i. If that means upgrading the inputs to the TV then that's what I

expect from Sony. There is a 53HS10/20/30 egroup on Yahoo which has 602

members. They are all concerned about this issue and we plan to take

action

if Sony does not take steps to make our sets HDTV compatible. Please

see

the group link below. http://groups.yahoo.com/group/sonyhs10/messages

I and 600 other Sony HS series owners expect this otherwise a) we will

boycott Sony products and b) you will potentially have a class action

law

suit on your hands.


Thank you
