[opendtv] Re: 625 video quality is good enough....

My "waiting a little" refers to the EBU waiting to see what happened in
Japan, the US, elsewhere. Until a market opens in Europe, the EBU doesn't
need a position on HD. That's where we are now, the market is just beginning
to open. That's why Europe's now talking about it. There was no point
before.
