Good luck with CBS, NBC, PBS, HBO, Showtime, etc.

Are we talking about 1080i or the SDTV stuff they are still using?


Mark is correct, we're stuck with this for awhile, at least for legacy ATSC receivers.

I do think it would be easier NOW to get agreement on progressive only for ATSC 2.0 and any future ISO MPEG/ITU compression standards.

1080P is now a practical reality, so the 1080i folks have an upgrade path that meets their "thousand line" expectations.
