... so no need for an OTA HD STB. It may or may not reach the mass market acceptance for it to become really cheap, certainly not by this summer...

Many, many, people will need to have an ota box when the analog cutoff date comes around. Lots of old people, poor people (like a college kid myself), etc. get tv ota. There will definitly be a huge market for these boxes, becuase not everyone wants to buy a new tv, if they could buy a digital box for cheap.

Well, Ryan, I'll have to disagree with that partially. You see, analog isn't suppose to be cut off completely by July of 2006. It's just that all networks have to be able to broadcast in digital by then. Most, if not all, networks will broadcast digital and analog at the same time. I believe I saw a chart one time of the expected distribution of digital vs analog broadcasts within the near future. I believe it was predicting that analog wasn't going to go away for at least another 10 years after 2006.

They'll be clearing out the 720p microdisplays because 1080p displays are coming out.

I just had an email offer from a reputable, authorized online dealer advertising a 42" HD Plasma (not EDTV) for $2000, I would say that is a major price drop.
