I thought that firewire (aka DTV link, IEEE 1394, iLink) was the connection to end all connections. Now almost nothing has firewire, except a few HDTVs and a handfull of OTA recievers. Plus if either of those have it, the price jumps $500. Was the industry scared that firewire would lead to rampant copy via PCs? Is firewire dead, and HDMI the new king? I kick myself for letting a Samsung T-165 pass me by at Best Buy. It was clearanced for $100 and now only sells on ebay for $250+ minimum!
