Waiting for the technology in LCD TVs
If this is true - its apporing news.
We are in my house now moving from watching TV over DVBT/DVBS to Internet TV. The public service in my country has now all channels live on the net, and now start with HBBTV. DVBx is dead, but still no TV sets are prepared ?
We have a 4 year old LCD TV with true matte screen, and enjoy every day the clean and clear picture thinking of the terrible plasma ( in terms of reflections ) we had before. We use a notebook with HDMI connected to the TV, but this becomes a bit unpractical in the long run. So if no TV support that we can watch the broadcast on Internet, then a compact Media Center with a remote will be the solution for now ? And wait for the TV industry to catch up ? And if no matte screen, its out of question any way to "down grade" picture quality.
Instead of throwing an ARM processor in and a custom home-brew OS, why not trow in a ULV i5 based system ? How difficult can it be to make a proper TV - they want to melt the TV and the computer - then do it !
