logoOk, this is the last "insert product name here integrated with an HD display" story for today unless Dean Kamen can put HDTV on a Segway. Actually he probably could, but Humax definitely appears poised to release a line of LCD sets with a built in DIRECTV tuner this year. A 20-inch SDTV version is slated for the first half of 2006, while a 32-inch high-definition model follows soon after, presumably just in time for DIRECTV to segue towards the MPEG-4 and HD locals they're rolling out.

Is everyone on-board for dumping set-top boxes or will you still feel compelled to have stacks of component boxes next to, under and on top of your HDTV?
