All systems that want to pick the right modulation that is best and have
receivers that would not work if they do so have to face the possibility of
rendering all those legacy receivers obsolete. The UK is facing that
possibility and will make the rational decision IMO to do just that, make
many current receivers obsolete.

NO PROBLEM WITH THAT!!! That is what I advocate. I ADVOACATE doing JUST that
here in the US because it is the rational thing to do. If in the testing we
find that a state of the art 8-VSB modulation is the best so be it.

What is crazy is using the current legacy receivers as a way of protecting
the current modulation and codec when switching is the logical thing to do,
to a newer version of 8-VSB if that proves best.

Yes all current STMB or DVB-T systems are saddled with legacy receivers but
not idiotic ways of thinking about updating their systems.
