I'm not sure whether this has been posted yet, but AVS Forum has been featured in a Washington Post special report on emergent digital TV technologies.

http://washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/was...-2001May9.html


As you can see, all of the details are laid out and it seems like a fair, accurate article, for a mainstream press overview report (no details are spared, so the negatives are balanced with positives).


In addition to HDTV, it goes into PVRs and the like.

The total mention came down to this...


"(If you are one of these long-suffering HD fans, a place to

commiserate and trade tips can be found at the Web site AVSforum.com.)"


While this is certainly a true statement, it communicates a feeling of a virtual bar where one can sing the HD blues rather than the general positive stuff that really happens here on a daily basis.


Any mention in a mainstream publication is good news. A total newbie has to be impressed with the depth and breadth of our experiences on the HD frontier.

Yes, especially one with circulation 1.1 million on Sundays, and no other outlets mentioned, in a very DTV-rich region. http://www.avsforum.com/ubb/smile.gif

That may be the only explicit mention, but I'd say that all three of these paragraphs were created by reading this forum:

And they have other frustrations. Local broadcast station technicians must manually switch to the HD format at the start of these shows. It's not unheard of for a forgetful techie to get a phone call from an HD-eager viewer.


There also can be lip-sync problems, because encoding a digital picture takes longer than sound, so a viewer could hear a basketball hit the floor before seeing it bounce. (If you are one of these long-suffering HD fans, a place to commiserate and trade tips can be found at the Web site AVSforum.com.)


Some early adopters may have moved to installing tuner cards in their personal computers, allowing them to watch a show on a PC while doing other things, said Jacobs. But because a PC typically isn't in the living room and might be needed for other tasks, such as bill paying or homework, the PC should not replace the TV yet.

-------------------

Those are all common topics of discussion here.
