I guess adding features to hardware is here to stay. I think i would rather have stuff added to a source component vs a TV. In a distributed scenario i would have to route audio out of the TV back to my matrix switch. This is something i typically never do because the TV acts as a monitor.

For the average consumer its not an issue though. I was standing behind a rack wiring up a clients system today when i thought about the Vizio article i read here. Thats when it dawned on me that i would need to route video back to the head end. Not a huge issue but if i can get Netflix or Vudu jammed inside a Blu-ray player vs a TV it would be a better fit.

Either way.. very cool to be able to offer bells and whistles to the client @ no extra charge.
