Who said you should be depressed, I didn't! What I was pointing out that even though in the past I was an early adopter (Betamax in 1976 before VHS), I cannot find any compelling reason to invest in HD while there is so very little HD equipment delivered and what equipment that is being marketed is changing so rapidly that it makes little sense to buy. Look at the DirecTV TiVo HD users who likely have to purchase a replacement DVR in the next year, after paying $1000 just a year ago. The same goes for Plasma TV users who likely had no idea that the lifespan of a Plasma Tv was not much more than three years. By 2009 (in 3 years), there should be a wealth of HD equipment and the standard should be a little more stabilized, since that will be a far larger percentage of delivered and deployed HD equipment. Dont get depressed because your TV cannot do 1080p. You realize that 56% of current HD users dont even watch HD content on their units (New York Times article this morning), and that the HD channels deliver less than 50% of actual HD content (a lot of delivered HD content is up converted SD content), that for me it just doesnt make sense to spend the money to only watch some of my investment be devalued by huge decreases in pricing, large changes in the performance of the equipment, and changes made to the HD standard that might require the purchase or re-purchase for upgrades. And then after all of that you realize that less than 25% of the content I currently watch will not be broadcasted in native a HD format for very many years.
