What the hell does this have to do with Star Wars?

Lucas is in cahoots with the tv manufacturers and broadcasters to achieve his vision of an all digital future of course. He doesn't want anyone watching the saga on some analog device. ;)

Seriously though, Canada isn't handing out vouchers for cheap converter boxes like they did here in the states two years ago?

I know, seriously!  After all, Canada pays for your birth, diapers, formula or breast pump, clothes, education through post doctorate including books, pencil boxes, and Trapper Keepers, runs 88.6% of the economy so they probably pay your wages, pays for your retirement, health care along the way, housing, and your casket and plot of ground.  Why wouldn't they provide vouchers?  It must be a sucky place to live if they won't pay for you to change over like that.

I seriously thought I was in "Off-Topic" when I posted this.

And I seriously think that I need to get my eyes checked out.

I bought a modest sized LCD HD set a couple years before the big switch, only to find out too late the FCC didn't require the CE companies to include the ability to receive unscrambled HD cable channels until the next model year. >_<

My mother has had a digi-box in almost every room in her house for years now.

I don't know how but she keeps breaking the things.

It's not an issue for me because I don't receive broadcast television in the house.

I'm more miffed with the switch away from analog radio.

How am I supposed to survive the inevitable zombie apocalypse without Resident Resistance Radio?

I don't think we can blame Lucas for this one.

HD radio has been around a while, but nobody seems to be planning to do away with analog radio in the U.S. anytime soon.
