Well, if that's the criteria we're using, then anything and everything in this forum is a "first world problem", no? Let's just go with the notion for some people, video and audio is more important than for others and leave it at that. There's no right or wrong there. For me, if I'm going to spend a lot of $$$ on a great HDTV and home theater audio system, I'm going to want content whose audio/video quality lets them shine. But that's me.
I don't think I'm alone in that, but sometimes I've seen people with HDTVs that don't even have them tuned to the HD version of a channel, lol. And if you point it out to them, they'll be like "Eh? I don't see the difference." It used to make me nuts, but I get that now. Everyone's different.
I agree completely. Don't get me wrong, all other things being equal, I'll take the higher resolution. I'm just not willing to pay 33% more for content to get it in most cases.
