        per month for HDTV in the future thing.  ok tnx.
        \_ That's a good reason to vote for or against someone.  hdtv pricing.
           What is the price of a slice of cake?  How much does a circus ticket
           cost?
           \_ don't know what you are on about... is the 100 per month
              thing McCain's fault?  did he champion it?  did the tv
              lobbyists compromise him?  is he just a dumbshit and got
              suckered?  why the hell do i need to switch to HDTV anyway?

4/16    When we move to HD signals, will cable tv descramblers no longer
        work? Or are they backward compatible?
        \_ If you're talking about the switching in 2009, it only applies to
           radio broadcast.  You can still use your analog TV to receive cable
           channels.

10/8    I'm looking for a handheld video player can do hdtv (720P?) video
        out and play Xvid and Divx video.  Does such a beast exist?
        \_ I saw someone on BART about a year ago watching movies on a device
           about 1" think and just slightly larger than a DVD.  I didn't quiz
           her on what formats it supported but I was sure jealous she was
           watching a movie while I was watching Oakland go by.

9/22    I want to buy a small (15 inch or so) LCD television to use mostly
        as a TV in my bedroom and/or outside on my covered patio. It has
        to be able to receive HDTV (digital) signals over the air when
        regular NTSC stops in 2009 (it will not have cable or satellite TV
        connected to it but I am willing to buy a small "rabbit ear" type
        of antenna) and I also want to be able to connect a computer to

8/20    I want to be able to streaming video / display photo on TV wirelessly.
        any recommendation on Apple TV alternatives?
        \_ What's important to you?  Divx?  Xvid?  HDTV?  Good UI?
           Autoasphyxiation?
        \_ Apple TV looks interesting. I'm wondering if I could connect
           a DISH directly to my Mac and stream that wirelessly to any TV in

12/19   I'm considering buying a home theatre system next year.  Is it better
        to buy everything from one company (like all-sony) or should I go
        for best of breed?  I'm looking to spend ~$5K only, nothing fancy.
        Suggestions?  Thanks.
        \_ For $5k, I'd definitely go best of breed. Especially when it
           comes to selecting speakers. One recommendation: go with Velodyne
