   A modern big TV won't be any worse than a big TV from a few years ago.
Although for some content it will be much better. I think that a lot of
people are just getting big sets in general and not really concerned with
the HD part. Although that does help DVD quality dramatically.

   This I think skews the "market penetration" numbers considerably.

   Want a big TV today? That pretty much means you're going to be lumped
into the "growing HD market".
