Yeah, the one you forgot about was an old one (
http://www.gossamer-threads.com/lists/mythtv/users/203463#203463 ), but
the message to which I replied was one you sent yesterday morning. I
did mention (but didn't quote) the other thread (and all the heat I
took) in my reply, though. :) I couldn't decide whether to send the
reply or not because of the potential for a lot of off-topic flames
choking the list (something to which the list shouldn't be
subjected--but feel free to send them my way ;).

It's probably easier to figure out what they say (and cut out the middle
man) as I often don't even make sense to myself. Something about a
permanent state of confusion...

Yes. We do have much to gain in the future as the new
hardware/infrastructure is put in place. (Especially once we start
getting some really-high-definition TV's. ;) For now, though, a good
HDTV with a good DVD gives a /huge/ improvement over NTSC. The
improvement from this DVD to HDTV (720p/1080i/1080p) is much smaller,
though (on today's TV's, but in the future... ;).
