Advertisements Everyone has some great points. You've all given me much to think about before I drop $ on HDTV Upgrades. As much as I want an HDTV the drag along upgrade impact (TiVo's, AV Receivers, Subscriptions), seems unjustified. (For me anyway, your mileage may vary). If I do go HDTV in the fall unless something changes, it will most likely be without TiVo. I can live with Live OTA for 1080i (live sports), bluray for 1080p (occasional blockbuster movies), streaming (netflix / hulu / amazon) at 720p (every day sit-coms) and my S2's as backups at 480i. When the next great thing comes out that has the features I want, then I'll drop all my add-ons and move to one box. Hopefully it is a TiVo, but if not (HTPC, PS/4, whatever) then that's the marketplace. As I mentioned before 1080i does not make shows stink any less than they already do from a content perspective. I agree 1080p looks amazing compared side by side to SDTV. But it is just TV after all. Thanks again for all the quality help, without making me feel foolish for asking these questions.
