NASA WILL BE BROADCASTING LIVE FROM SPACE IN HDTV at 11:30 Eastern today. It’ll be on the Discovery HD channel.

And yes, I’ll be watching it (I think I get Discovery HD) on the TV I mentioned earlier — the reader advice was mostly positive, and while the inevitable wait until the new technology appears in a few months advice was persuasive, it always is and you have to buy something sometime. I’m very happy with the picture, and as several readers point out, Consumer Reports liked the JVC line a lot, too. I didn’t buy it off Amazon, but from the local H.H. Gregg outlet, which wanted a lot more but which I persuaded to match the Amazon price.
