 From what I sense from the conversations I have had (can't divulge) 
that it is the government mandate that is the customer here and that 
integrated sets are the market not real people. Real people don't have 
enough info to be customers. They are selling to the government mandate 
and expect the customer will buy integrated sets where all the profit is 
by default.

The digital transition is not their responsibility. They seem pretty 
happy with the uptick in integrated set sales. Are there any?

ATI seems to think they have a receiver that has cornered the market and 
are totally dismissive of LG. I would just like to test one ASAP.
