I'd go for "neither, that's a false dichotomy"
It's SD right now; we are talking about the future.
And you can do HD on a bog standard copper ADSL connection - I've used Zune on a 360 to stream HD over my ~6mbps connection.
Pete77, not only have you not answered my question or post but you've got the nerve to continue posting on this selfsame thread. Answer the question please! If you've forgotten it, reread the posts.
I cant believe that after 7 years here, you'd expect anything else..
Of course, youre totally right. But I've just had enough of him. If I appeal to his sense of reason, fairness & democracy he may engage in an adult conversation & take responsibility for his posts. Then again he will probably revert to character.
I just have this nagging feeling that deep down inside he may well have something useful to add to the discussion instead of hit & run posting. We'll see.
Just to throw in my two pence worth. Tiscali/Talk Talk (TV) have been delivering multichannel TV through the existing phone line for sometime now, with a recorder. So even with normal ADSL it is possible to use the phone line to transmit a multichanneltv.
All TalkTalk LLU'ed exchanges (which I assume are the only ones offering the tv product) have up to 24Mbps LLU equipment installed rather than just standard ADSL+ up to 8Mbps that several thousand other BT smaller exchanges have. Of course this still won't be any help to those living along way from the exchange on these TalkTalk LLU'ed areas and I assume that they get told they can't have the service via a postcode search just as those in non TalkTalk LLU'ed exchange areas do.
However the point of fibre optic to the cabinet upgrading by BT is to bring things like HD web tv to almost everyone on the upgraded exchange in due course regardless of how far away from the exchange they are. Also while BT are starting at 48Mbps with their BT Infinity service in due course after a few more years much higher speeds like 500Mbps etc will almost certainly be offered, especially once the inevitable Fibre To The Home upgrade is then offered by BT for those willing to sign long broadband contracts or pay the direct cost of laying the new cable from the cabinet to the home. Of course all that requires BT to also substantially upgrade their backbone broadband fibre optic network cabling too in due course..................
However you clearly forget that Martin 0646 (as distinct from the totally unconnected Hanworth based Martin variant) has already proudly publicly admitted in this forum to having a far bigger you know what than most of the rest of us here.
Once you allow for that fact the rest of his behaviour and frequently confrontational attitude towards certain other forum members is quite easily explained.
In other words the poor chap simply can't help it.
(and baffled?) The only one here who has admitted to having anything bigger than the rest of us is you. How do you manage to squeeze into your hairdressers car?
Just you ....& carl when he's on his VM hobbyhorse
Then how do you account for this recent post:-
Please leave me out of your petty squabbles. Some of you are as bad as each other.
It's called sarcasm. At least, I assume it was; even with the lack of smileys.
And the TV companies to massive upgrade at their end.
Oh for goodness sake! If you're going to quote from a thread then at least read the posts.
An explanation for the the simple & feeble minded; B166er, no doubt pissed off by the bickering, posted a humourous flow chart pointing what an idiot one is when one gets sucked into arguing online with wums & trolls. At the bottom it congratulates the reader for being a huge dick with a mock "For Excellence in Dickery" award. THAT is what I was accepting because he was absolutely right. You surely didn't think I was talking about my own anatomical parts did you?
The thread this is from is here. Please see Post #101. You know this thread, it's the one where you still haven't answered my questions!!!
But the question is how did you so readily arrive at the bottom of the chart instead of taking one of the sideways routes off it that I and most less huge dickish inclined people would have followed.
I do know perfectly well which thread this was all discussed in thank you. Can I therefore perhaps take it that at your school they never taught you about the pun in your English classes.
Also with regard to the term huge dick at the base of the b166er flow chart what language root exactly do you suppose that this term derives itself from. With regard to the size of anatomical appendages I believe it was someone else who started the discussion by suggesting that my posting style was as a result of having an undersized appendage. It might have been you or it might have been someone else but I really don't have the time to go back and check up on it all now.
My irony dectector just exploded
Or, to put it another way...
I think we have a new winner
Because I can take a look at myself & recognise when I'm wrong & be big enough to admit.
