Widescreen and Letterbox anti advocacy by Mikito Harakiri
Why do they produce DVDs in letterbox? Because some moron told everybody that a viewer "can see more" with in this format? Yeah, right. When asking Netflix why do they have letterbox as an only format available, the reason is: "Some movies don't really fit into one DVD in the alternative formats so...

8VSB sucks, Bob is right by magnulus
If the US Government actually wanted off-air broadcast television to survive, they should not have picked 8VSB for HDTV or DTV services. 8VSB DOES NOT replicate NTSC coverage or eas-of-use. 8VSB is POOR for most indoor reception. So why has the government not listened to those raising red flags?...

ESPN HD response to complaint. by Charles Tomaras
I complained to ESPN about their ongoing aspect ratio distortion and here is the replay I finally got: Thank you for your e-mail. We have shared your comments with the appropriate personnel for ESPN HD. Currently, ESPN HD is a simulcast service of ESPN. Until ESPN HD is a 24-hour, 7-day-a-week...

Blu-ray Numbers Too Low To Release by pj

Experts/Polls: Toshiba's HD-DVD dead in the water. Blu-ray will win. by asj
Research firms (e.g. Forrester Research) note that Blu-ray will most likely win in the format war: "Blu-ray has several advantages that will help it win the day, Schadler said. HD DVD is a one-trick pony for video playback, but Blu-ray is also designed for games and computers, he said. Indeed, its...

Harsh, "aliased" sound with digital TV converter box. by Doc[_2_]
I just picked up an Insignia NS-DXA1 digital converter box at Best Buy. The picture comes in clear but on some channels, I've noticed what I'd call an aliasing artifact in the sound - overly shrill and harsh on the highs. It seems to be more prevalent on certain channels. Is this an issue with...

"progressive" format sucks by Mikito Harakiri
Can't entertainment people swallow a simple fact that the screen ratio at home is 4:3? All my computer screens have that ratio. My in-focus projector has it. It's technically easier to implement video system that has ratio closer to 1:1, so that basically you pay more money the boxier the aspect...

Death of OTA Broadcasting by Bob Miller
A few years ago the then FCC Chairman Powell asked the question, "What are we protecting?" in reference to the low number of households that still rely on OTA broadcast TV. Political correctness has kept this issue quiet but I found this article in the Toronto Star that suggest that others are...

Korea is not switching from 8VSB to COFDM.... by IHATEF15
The current set of news release to foreign press make it seem as Korea is about to switch from 8VSB to COFDM, not true. The government agency in charge(which does both regulation and R&D) has no intension of switching from 8VSB to COFDM, they practically "finished" the 8VSB development after the...

The End of Free OTA by Bob Miller
I have predicted that not to long after the digital transition is over in 2009 that Congresscritters or a Congresscritter might notice that virtually no one is using digital channels 2-51. And that this would lead to a proposal that these channel should be taken from their current licensees and...

why does 720p exist? by Paul Kienitz
Can someone explain to me what the heck they were thinking when they created two separate HD formats that can't be interconverted without quality loss? There's no way I can look at this situation and not go "Hey, that was kinda dumb." I was sorta hoping that the broadcasters would all use 1080i...

Do you really like the way HDTV looks? by HiC
Went into a local Circuit City and took a good long look at their HDTV selections. They had several including 2 1080p sets that I was told were set up correctly and what I was seeing was as good as it gets. Everything HD from the cams to the screen. Both the 1080p's were running some sort of...

Final Evening of Analog TV? by Hart Larry
Now I don't know if its the morning or evening of February 17, 2009, but, especially if its Monday evening, the Broadcast Networks would probably not schedule their 1135PM shows, as at midnight, lots of changes would happen? Just for example, here in the LA area, since channels 9, 11, and 13 may...
