Coming to a Wal-Mart near you is the 'gorgeous' new 50-inch plasma by Daewoo. Nothing special here folks as it's just another 1366x768 panel with 10:000: contrast ratio and a brightness of 1,500 nits. We were half-way thinking that this PDP was from last years IFA as it sports a DVI connection and

When the HDTV buying bug comes around and bits ya, do you think \"Man, I need to head down to Wal-Mart to check out the latest HDTVs -- plus, they have my favorite fruit snacks on sale.\" Wal-Mart is hoping that with a little bit of advertising targeting the Monday Night Football crowd that eventually

So you just don't know what to think about the first HDTV show distributed via the Internet. We can understand your hesitance in expending your bandwidth to download nearly a gig (1.5GB for the 1080p flavor) just to watch something you might not like. Well, mariposaHD is now on YouTube -- kind of.

Doesn't it just tear every fiber in your body when you are immensely enjoying a TV show only to be distracted by a bad set? You know, kind of like when Sidney Bristo (Alias) is racing down an exhaust vent to 'disarm' a satellite gizmo on a random rocket just before the launch and therefore the utter

Can't you see this 24-inch iMac mounted up on your office wall with a DVR full of [insert favorite HDTV show here] The new 24-inch iMac may be the closest thing on the market to a perfect platform for a HDTV with a built-in computer. Or is it a computer with a built-in HDTV? Alas, the model doesn't

People like MTV's high-def station, MHD, because the station isn't anything like what MTV has evolved into. MHD is all about music not some reality TV show where the grandparents of some teenage girl all sit on a bus trying to decide how to spend $120,000 on her 13th birthday. No, MHD is like the M

So, you purchased that lifetime TiVo subscription but want one of those shiny new Series 3 boxes. TiVo has you covered -- kind of. It is going to cost you a mere $199 one-time fee (heard that before) to transfer over your Series 1 or Series 2 subscription. There is a catch though. It looks like the

New York is all set to start receiving their local breaking news in HD via the NBC Universal-owned WNBC station on September 13. Start? You would think that the number one market in the country would already of had their local news in HD, but nope, this is going to be the first one in the market. Wo

The SpyderTV tends to be the pro-sumer calibration tool of choice. For nearly the same cost as a professional calibration, a person could pick up this tool and calibrate their display themselves. It does most of the work for you but it still isn't going to match the experiences or knowledge that an

Answer us this? Can you think of a better high-def flesh-tone demo then this movie? We sure can't and if you have seen the film, you know what scene we are talking 'bout. The movie is coming a little later then we had originally indicated but it is on its way nether-the-less. Universal is releasing

Quick note here: we wish that we would have found this trailer for our HD Trailer Tuesday Wednesday. Game trailers usually isn't our cup of tea but this trailer looks amazing in high-def, simply amazing. Unfortunately, Gamespot requires you to have their $1.69 a month subscription to view the high-

Now this is the type of tip we like to hear about. A DirecTV employee just dropped us a note indicating that anyone can get four months of their high-def package for free as long as they speak up and ask for it. We don't know how long that promo is going for but the key here is that you must ask for

That was quick. We just received word a few days ago that Lite-On was making HD DVD drives but wondered if they were going to receive any OEM orders from big players in the HD DVD camp. They received a order and it sure is from a big player -- Toshiba. The key HD DVD player ordered these units so it

The Series 3 TiVo must be close to launching. They are already beta testing the units and now there is a product page up on TiVo.com. Well, it really isn't a full product page as there isn't much info on here. If you take away all the marketing talk, there really is just a picture of the unit and t

Each week here at HDBeat, we are grab some of the best setups out of our Flickr pool to be featured here on our homepage. This week we explore the rare lands of multi-display rooms. These viewing areas feature two, three and even 18 HDTVs. We don't care where they are located, (i.e. bar, living room

The Blu-ray Disc Association just dropped us a note concerning their August 31 press event at the IFA Conference. While we don't have any exact details, we do know what is going to be talked about and the part the interests us the most is the key partner announcement. Fox is planning to announce its

Those manly-men over at TheManRoom.com must have some sharp eyes 'cause they noticed that the HD DVD promotional website has been updated from the last time we looked to include some major films. There isn't any release dates on this list, but hopefully we will see them sooner rather then later. Som

What? Why are we going backwards here? More shows are suppose to go high-def and HD shows should never ever revert back to standard definition. So why is E!'s \"Live from the Red Carpet\" Emmy coverage not being simulcast on INHD this year like it has since 2003? The obvious reason is that Joan Rivers

Yeah, we know. It is suppose to be HD Trailer Tuesday, but we just didn't get a chance to have one yesterday and keeping the new Mitsubishi 1080p projector in mind, it is better late than never. So, we then present to you HD Trailer Wednesday. Apple unloaded a slew of high-def trailers within the l
