NetFlix Update 3

Well, the first of the 'replacement' discs arrived today (shipped yesterday).

Need to watch a couple DVDs before the next two will be able to make their way to me... &#59;D

I guess NetFlix had some really bad luck, when they had 3 discs bound for at the same time got lost....

Digital TV changeover suggested for 2009

Link: http://news.com.com/Digital+TV+changeover+suggested+for+2009/2100-1028-5785519.html?part=dht&tag=ntop&tag=nl.e703

They say they want us to hurry up and make the switch to digital. But, they still talking about off in 2009, there'll be the $50 converters available....

Well, obviously most people are going to wait until these $50 converters become available then.

What they need to do is make the $50 converters available now. Which is where the price should be now.....

Of course, they also need to stop fiddling around with how digital TV is going to be done. Treating the digital TV market the same way as computers isn't going to fly with consumers.

My old analog TV served me fine for 21 years, the only thing along the way was getting external tuners to keep up with the growing number of TV channels.

I got a digital ready TV/Monitor....just doesn't have a tuner....but one of these will come into existence when they come up with the standard.... Well, there's CableCard 1.0, and new TVs come with it built in now. But, where are the tuners for those of us that already got digital TVs without them? Of course, maybe they are waiting for CableCard 2.0 to come into existence, and how will they support the people that already have the older TVs?

Telling them that they should've waited until 2009 like the rest of the world?

Now instead of subjecting some poor random forum to a long rambling thought, I will try to consolidate those things into this blog where they can be more easily ignored profess to be collected thoughts from my mind.
