The Panasonic ATSC DVD recorder is now available:

The big complaint on AVSForum is that these boxes can't be used as stand-alone HDTV tuners since there is either no HD output at all, or the HDMI HD output is just
scaled up from the already downscaled HD.

Although many posters think this is some conspiracy, it's just a technology
issue. Next year's model will have HD output.

I note in this week's Best Buy ad supplement a Dynex 20-inch CRT SDTV for $149.99.

Circuit City, meanwhile, has a 13-inch analog Symphonic for $49.99.

TTFN,
