Thats exactly it - perfect summary of why to shoot in HDV Ken.

Yeah, I can't imagine watching this HV20 footage on an SD television. It'd be like having a beautiful girlfriend and putting her in a potato sack.... uh, or something like that...

Highest my monitor can do is like 2330 x 1440

24" Widescreen CRT ;)
LOL! I can point you to some CRT Front Projector users displaying images in 1080p at a screen-size of >100 inches.

...if that's what it takes to get her in the sack, then I'd watch it on SD ;-)

Thanks for the responses, folks!
You hit the nail on the head. You may not have HD equipment now, but you will one day. At that time, you can go back to your recorded HDV and create HD if you wish. Unfortunately, if you only record in SD, that's it.
