Bout time,lol!! I have to laugh at the times my family and I have stayed at a nice hotel and we walk into the room, seeing the nice lcd tv in there. Turn it on and it looks like CRAP because the hotel had not upgraded their tv signals/recievers. I dont even bother asking the front desk anymore,lol.My mancave:

My hotel upgraded to HD sets too
We have the same problem at the chain hotel I work at. The owners are ditching the CRTs for 32" HD sets. The problem is there are no local receivable HD channels and our cable system has yet to offer HD. At least the larger sized screens make SD easier to watch from a distance and we have had nothing but praise from our regulars for putting them in despite the dearth of HD content. They can still hook up their own Bluray, PCs, or gaming systems to them. Satellite currently is still an expensive upgrade. Each room would have to have their own receiver boxes adding more expense in power consumption and negating the energy savings the flat panels provided over the CRTs. I think Dish Network may have worked that issue out, but we haven't checked into how much it would cost to have a single receiver sending signals out via the existing cable network in our building.
Oddly enough I stayed at a major hotel chain in Sparks, NV that also upgraded to flat panel and despite it being in a fully served HD market(Reno), there was not a single local channel on their system in HD.
