Multimedia, AV An interesting anecdote at MinimalMac about television being broken. The author's young daughter, who is growing up in a Netflix/Hulu/iTunes/etc. household, was confronted with actual TV for the first time, and wonders why she can't pick what to watch, why the shows are being interrupted all the time, and so on. Clearly - TV is broken.

If you have a decent upscaler in your TV (like I do), you can barely see the difference between 1080 and DVD.

You should know there's a massive difference between upscaling something and comparing it against the source you upscaled from, and comparing DVD with native 1080p...

Upscaling (and for that matter, transcoding anything to higher bitrates) will _never_ improve quality. The absolute best you can hope for is the same as your source.
