    Is Anandtech adding television reviews to the lineup? It would be fantastic to have a technology oriented site look at them, I've not hear other sites discus things like chipsets when it comes to TVs. Reply

    If they are going to be making money again, does that mean they'll be able to ship their products despite the court injunction for violating BusyBox's GPL? Reply

    It's a different company. the new name is Westinghouse Digital LLC(the old one was Westinghouse Digital Electronics LLC)

    the company that busybox sued is either defunct or still in bankrupcy, and a new company was formed to take over their assets.
    they must have an agreement with busybox, because it would be beyond stupid if they just decided to violate their glp a second time.

    Thanks for the clarification. I see they are at least taking a stab at compliance. Reply

    Their OS is Linux. Specifically, Busybox:

    Maybe this would be worth an article or two under your Linux heading?

    It's sad - in 2008 there were a couple 1440p and 1 1600p TVs being shown but I haven't heard anything in the last 2 years.

    1080p has been the top for long enough - it's time to move forward rather than trying to push 3D.

    Why? 1080p is more than enough. Our streaming video is barely getting into 1080p and very few television broadcasts are hitting 1080p. I'd say stick with it for another 5 years so that internet bandwidth and streaming video can mature. THEN make a push into the higher resolutions, which I still find unnecessary.

    The reason why I say this is because to the naked eye, people can't tell the difference between 720p and 1080p from 8 feet away on a TV that is under 40". It's only when you push it past 50" that you start to see the difference between the two. I've seen 1080p stretched beyond 100" on a projector and feel it looks incredible.

    I hope they have better customer service then they did back in 2008. I purchased one of their LCD monitor and it was dead in four months. Called the help line to see if they wantedme to send it to them or just return it to the store. The call center I got sounded like they were talking through a tin can and the "advisor" barely spoke English so I just ended up taking it back. Reply
