Humax planning satellite receivers in HD displays

Kevin C. Tofel

Ok, 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?
