Did anybody else read Ken Pohlman's article in the Sound and Vision that's on newstands right now, the one titled (IIRC) "Apocolypse Now Delayed, The Death Of Analog TV"? Wow, I agreed with the whole article. He mentioned a lot of touchy issues concerning the changeover to DTV, particularly the government's involvement with it (though exactly what I can't mention here [hint: ever heard the phrase "cash register congress?]), a certain other country's involvement and some spot-on social commentary concerning TV viewing habits. It seemed weird to read these kinds of thoughts in a publication devoted to the A/V hobby, so I'm glad the editors let him voice a view that I think more people should be aware of. Go Ken!!! BTW: in another part of the magazine, they had an informative article (720p vs. 1080i images) on how much visual resolution a human actually has & how much resolution their monitor needs to take advantage of ALL that human's visual capability....and the answer probably isn't what the TV manufacturers want to hear. Heres' the white paper they mentioned: "Tests of visual acuity to determine the resolution required of a television transmission system"
