HD Nation discusses the latest news about HD content and products. Today, the show opens up with the announcement that Walmart has bought VuDu and that customers will be able to purchase the services and the devices from their store. The major article of todayâ€™s show is the review of the Samsung UN46D8000 HDTV, which is a 46 inch LED HDTV that features full HD (1920 x 1080) resolution and an estimated 25000000:1 dynamic contrast ratio. The hosts love how thin the TV is, thanks to LED edge light technology and the included QWERTY keyboard remote control. The TV is loaded with features and one of the best is the TVâ€™s movie mode. The hosts state that this is one of the best image qualities that they have seen. The only problem that the hosts had with the TV was a few uniformity problems that showed some cross bars throughout the image. The hosts conclude this weekâ€™s show by answering a viewerâ€™s question about playing DVDs. The question was is it possible to play DVDs smoothly at 23.976 fps if you have a TV that supports 1080p24? The hosts state that Panasonic is one of the only DVD players that can convert DVDs but the feature needs to be physically activated every time.
