Another HDTV Tidbit...

With the amount of information available to digital TV, I wonder what good (and bad) ideas will emerge after digital TV becomes mandatory.....

Digital TV signal can carry 20,000,000 bps of data

Full HD (1080p) requires up to 18,000,000 bps so not much wiggle room

Standard definition (480i) requires 4,000,000 bps so plenty of room to work with, and if your HDTV can upscale well you will have near HD quality anyway.
