I've said it before here and I'll say it again: We Americans don't
know how good we've got it HDwise. The only reason I watch SD is
because of some rerun on a non-HD cable chanel, or an old movie on
TCM, or a cartoon (and note that _The Simpsons_ just went HD).

As someone who hopes one day to have a triple digits-inch screen like
you do, I found this statement interesting. So you've found that (say)
a football game on ABC, or a drama on FOX, is too pixelated for your
tastes via projector?
