I am sure some of you have noticed this already but we have turned a corner in the adoption of HD ready sets. Get out your Best Buy (or similar) ad from this week. Now go to the big screen TV page. Remember how a few months ago there would be like 4 big screen SD sets and maybe one or two HD sets. Now it's the opposite. Among the big screens, the SD sets are now the footnote. Several people at work who will have no clue on what they really need to do to get HD are at least purchasing HD ready sets. One of the major drivers (IMO) is the look of a DVD on these sets via progressive scan or even via S-video with the line doubler. I'm sure some of you noticed this already but we are getting there. Last year when I mentioned HD people looked at me like I just came from the AV club in the basement of the science bldg. This summer the question is "what set should I buy." As a footnote, for better or worse, these people are totally oblivious to the the copy protection/compatibility issues that most of us are worried about.
