DTV/HD/cablecard/encryption fiasco is that it will effectively kill
off cable TV (how would this impact broadcast TV?) due to unnecessary
complexity and accelerate everyone's move to streaming video sites --
which "just work" with no stupid cablecard, black box, black bars/box
around content, stretched out SD videos, medieval channel maps, etc.

Computer powerful enough to stream online video is less than most
people pay in a year for set top box rentals alone...

I hope Comcast doesn't succeed in buying NBC, getting a giant stake in, and wrecking that too.

P.S. - Still love MythTV :)
