RE: HD Television sets

Most of the HD on the air here is either the same old demo loops,
or upconverted composite NTSC from video cameras.  The demo loops
look good, but those upconversions are really really crap.  Film
telecined to 601 (d-Beta, I don't work for Sony) and then
upconverted with the 3-2 undone (I don't work for Snell & Wilcox)
can look so good on a consumer CRT or RP display that real HD is
barely worth the bother.
