I Want My HDTV (soon)

After weeks of not getting around to it, I fired up my Media-Center-in-process. I got a copy of the Do Amazing Things DVD, which has Hi-Def Windows Media versions of BMW Films series of short films. Mostly, I wanted to see if my underpowered (733MHz Pentium 3) could handle the Hi-Def feed. Short answer: it doesn’t. So do I want to buy new CPU/MB/Memory and rebuild my system just to be able to watch Terminator 2: Judgment Day in Hi-Def on my big screen TV? Short answer: not yet, but soon. Given Windows Media’s focus on digital cinema tools, I imagine that T2 will be just the first of many movies available in Hi-Def Windows Media.
