I'm in favour of that too, and would immediatly change my subscription.
You have to remember alot of people nowadays watch via projection/50" plasma etc.
I have just been checking out LLVJ 16 on a 70" rear-projector. As it happens, I can easily vary the "screen size". I'd say that at normal viewing distances the video download looks "OK" (not great, but OK) at a screen size up to, say, 25" wide. Beyond that the paucity of detail starts getting annoying, but no more annoying than most broadcast news channels, especially the NTSC broadcast channels. In our part of the world we watch NTSC and PAL interchangeably without giving it a thought. Sort of makes it obvious why N.Americans are gobbling up HD with gusto. PAL channels with 625 lines always seem to be so much nicer to watch on a large screen than NTSC and some of the PAL movie channels we get by satellite are competitive with DVD movies. But DVDs also show their paucity in resolution, compared to HD. Rather than DVD-clone downloads perhaps the next generation downloads should be straight HD. Presumably the chosen codec would support 780 or 1080 lines. Since LLVJ is already shot in HD, it might be more bandwidth-efficient to video-download 780 or 1080 HD, rather than a still unsatisfactory NTSC-DVD clone, for your projector. By the way, how do you feed your projector? Burn a DVD first? Or do you use it as a PC monitor? For HD you may have to burn a Blu-Ray or an HD-DVD. I just use a memory stick in a Playstation 3. I hope the PS3 will also work for an HD download. No disc burning involved.
