LG Plasma HDTV with DVR

LG Plasma HDTV with DVR

LG has introduced a couple of new plasma HDTVs with built in DVR (digital video recorders).

While these look pretty we don't think this is a step in the right direction as there will always be problems with the cable and satellite providers trying to control everyone's TV experience.

These TV work with the "industry standard" CableCARD, the same CableCARD system that nearly every US cable and satellite provider is ignoring. A perfect example of this is Time Warner Cable who have a webpage devoted to proving how limited CableCARD is and how you are better off with their set-top box. The main downside of CableCARD is that it is one-way only so you can't get Pay-Per-View or your cable companies program guide.

Other downsides to these TVs are their cost ($15k for 60-inch and $8k for 50-inch) and small storage capacity (just 12 hrs of HDTV).

We think this is convergence gone wrong and that for the same amount of money you could get a great LCD TV along with a terabyte sized storage solution and a media center PC.

Buffalo LinkTheater

buffalo linktheater

If you are looking to stream video, music, and photos from your PC to a TV and are concerned about some of the drawbacks of the Microsoft Media Center edition software with Media Center extenders then the Buffalo LinkTheater could be the answer:

Unlike a Media Center Extender it supports all popular video formats including Xvid and DivX (allowing much smaller files sizes).

Unlike a Media Center Extender you can stream HDTV (720p and 1080i).

Unlike a Media Center Extender the LinkTheater has a built-in DVD player.

The downside to this extra functionality is that the LinkTheater isn't designed to talk to a media center PC so you can't browse TV listings, watch live TV, or schedule recordings.

Guess What We're Watching?

Sharp LC45GX6U 45 inch LCD

Technically it is known as the Sharp LC45GX6U, but to us it is 45 inches of High Definition LCD TV goodness.

We saw it in person at the CES show in Vegas, and opened our wallet. Yes, we didnt blag, beg, borrow, or steal this to review, we bought it, for you our loyal readers (well maybe we bought it for ourselves as well!).

Here's is the short review:

Wow! this thing f**king rocks!

A long review will follow next week.

We were lusting after so many nice TVs on the CES show floor today that we had to share.

First up is the largest TV in the world, a 102" plasma from Samsung that will probably cost a outrageously lust-deflating bank-account-emptying amount:

Kreisen 30-inch LCD HDTV Review

Kreisen LT-30FMP 30-inch LCD HDTV Monitor Review

ecoustics have posted a review of the Kreisen LT-30FMP 30-inch LCD HDTV Monitor which displays 720p HDTV (1280x768 resolution).

Overall it seemed a good LCD for the price ($1349) but seemed to have a few too many cons to be someones main TV.

"It was hard not be impressed when I first viewed the Kreisen LT-30FMP 30-inch flat panel LCD HDTV monitor.
The HDTV over-air-picture was stunning when I watched Monday Night Football in high definition (720p). The LCD handled bright scenes very well, and at times the picture looked 3-dimesional in HD."

"Only after extended viewing did I start to notice some of its shortcomings. Reds seemed to be over-emphasized, and the picture at times seemed overly bright. Not surprisingly, the contrast and brightness settings were set almost all the way up, which is a common tactic manufacturers are using to make flat panels look better on a showroom floor."

HDTV Buying Guide

HDTV Buying Guide

Extremetech have updated their HDTV buying guide and here are their conclusions:

"HDTV is still evolving, and will no doubt continue to grow. In 2004, 50% of HDTVs sold had built-in HDTV tuners. By mid-2005, 100% of all HDTVs will be required by FCC mandate to have embedded HDTV tuners. Once tuner availability hits full penetration of new units sold, we'll likely see an avalanche of new content. Already, DirecTV has repurposed several satellites that were slated for data transmission and converted them to high-definition broadcasting. Those will be launched in the coming year.

So the transition is well under way. In the coming year, HDTVs will improve and hardware prices will drop. The only question is: When will you hop on the bandwagon? "

It is a shame that the US is still so far behind many other parts of the world wheh it comes to HDTV but it looks like things are finally moving forward more quickly.

FCC Power Grab

Susan Crawford found some very interesting wording in a legal brief filed by the FCC (Federal Communications Commission) as part of a lawsuit brought by a number of advocacy groups over the Broadcast Flag (a mandate that by mid-2005 all devices capable of receiving a digital signal have to obey a flag settable by the networks to prevent copying).

Now this is bad in itself as it limits our rights to record a program for viewing at a later date but it gets worse: in the brief the FCC claims that they have regulatory power over "all instrumentalities, facilities, and apparatus associated with the overall circuit of messages sent and received via all interstate radio and wire communication."

So, if a Gadget (PC, Tivo, home distributed wiring control panel, wireless router, networked hard drive) is capable of receiving and/or transmitting on any digital file the FCC thinks they can regulate it and force manufacturers to support the broadcast flag.

Now the FCC is on a morality crusade at the moment, starting with Janet Jackson at the Superbowl and leading to 20 ABC affiliates refusing to air "Saving Private Ryan" on Veterans day because they were afraid of FCC fines over the violence and the F word, I don't want an organization like that trying to regulate my pc, my home network, and my internet use.

Samsung Develops Thin CRT TV

Samsung Develops Thin CRT TV

Samsung has announced a new 32 inch CRT TV (cathode ray tube... you know, the big TVs we used to have before LCDs came along :)

The big selling point is that is is "only" 15 inches thick (compared to 20 to 25 inches for regular CRT TVs).

Maybe I will be mistaken and this will be a big seller but I doubt it: if you can afford to pay extra for a Thin CRT then why not pay a little more and get a 3 or 4 inch thick LCD TV?

LCD TVs are coming down in price and going up in screen size and quality, and in the next two years they will push plasma out of the market. The only decision I have to make is to replace my aging back projection TV with a 37 inch LCD or wait until 45 inch or larger comes down in price.

World's Biggest OLED

Sometimes writing this site seems more like the Guinness Book of World Records instead of gadget news, the main difference is that here the records change almost daily:

LG Philips broke the record for largest OLED (organic light emitting diode) display at the FPD show in Japan yesterday by showing off a 20.1 inch screen.

People (ok, geeks) get excited about OLED screens as they do not need a seperate backlight, so power consumption is lower and battery life is longer, and the screen is thinner.

Toshiba had a really light little projector at the digital life show.

The Toshiba TDP-P7U is 7.3" x 6.9" x 1.8", and connects to your PC via USB, RCA, D-Sub, S-Video and just about anything else you can think of. If you want one it will set you back about $1899.

Samsung LT-P468W 46 inch LCD

Samsung LT-P468W 46 inch LCD

We are waiting for the 65" LCD that Sharp announced last week, but until that comes out the largest LCD TV you can buy is the Samsung LT-P468W 46 inch LCD.

Extremetech took a detailed look at the Samsung LT-P468W 46 inch LCD:

"Unless there's a magic combination of knobs and levers to change the panel's dark-scene performance characteristics, we're left with a big, bright LCD panel that despite some very good image quality in bright scenes, we still can't award it top marks."

Extremetech only gave the Samsung LT-P468W 46 inch LCD 7 out of 10.

Sharp Aquos 65 Inch LCD TV

Sharp Aquos 65 Inch LCD TV

(Update: We got to see the Sharp 65" LCD TV at CES, click here for photos)
They are too late for this year's baseball playoffs but for the ultimate viewing experience next year check out the new LCD TV from Sharp.

The Sharp Aquos 65 Inch LCD TV announced today by Sharp is by far the world's largest LCD TV. The massive 65 inch diagonal screen will be almost 57 inches wide and 32 inches high, and will display a massive 6.2 megapixels (1920 x 1080 pixels) resulting in a great high-definition TV experience.

Sharp doesn't say much else in their press release (japanese) excelpt that the Sharp Aquos 65 inch LCD TV would be available in 2005 if they decide to go ahead with production.

Sharp's 45 inch LCD TV currently goes for around $7000 and thier 37 inch can be bought for close to $3000, so I would expect a 65 inch LCD TV to be introduced at $10000 and would fall to $7000 within a few months.

If you can't afford the 65 inch (and who can?), one side effect of this announcement is that prices for smaller LCDs should go lower.

LCD TVs typically outperform Plasma in screen life, picture quality, and brightness, so if you are in the market for a new TV don't forget to consider them.

Personally I am looking to buy a 30 to 40 inch LCD TV in the next year, I'm just waiting for the right price.

The Sharp Mebius PC-TX26GS/TX26G will be available in Japan in December.

How TV and HDTV Work

sharp aquos 37

ecoustics has posted a brief but very useful article on how TV and HDTV work, including a simple explanation of the different digital formats:

480i: Picture transmits at 60 interlaced fields per second (30 frames per second). Same number of scan lines and frames per second (fps) as analog, but provides a slightly improved image merely because of digital transmission method. Provides surround sound-capable digital audio that matches CD-quality Known as Standard Definition Television (SDTV)

480p: Same number of scan lines as analog, but sent progressive-style (60 complete fps) resulting in an even more improved picture. Capable of Dolby Digital Audio. Known as Enhanced Definition Television (EDTV)

720p: Higher resolution picture with 720 scan lines, sent at 60 complete fps. Provides Dolby Digital 5.1 Surround This is HDTV

1080i: Even higher resolution (1080 scan lines), but fewer frames per second. (60 fields per second, equal to only 30 complete fps). Provides Dolby Digital 5.1 Surround This is HDTV

1080p: This is the ultimate format goal for the future: the best of both worlds with maximum scan lines and maximum fps. No broadcasters have adopted this format, and not many TVs can display it properly.

Sony Qualia 005

sony qualia 005 46

Sony have announced a number of new TV's including the Qualia 005, a 46" LCD TV that uses LEDs (light emitting diodes) as a backlight (Sony claim this improves the color reproduction of the TV).

Other features include Emotion Engine and Graphics Synthesizer, regular TV to HDTV upscaler (makes regular TV look better), and cross media bar GUI. The price is around $10,000.

A very nice product but again Sony are unwilling to be price competitive. I can get the 45" Sharp Aquos (which looks amazing!) for $7300 from Onecall (onecall price valid until 8/23) so I am not convinced why I would want to spend 40% more for Sony.
