What’s wrong with most TV systems is that components don’t intelligently talk with each other. We should be able to tell our cable box to always show our channels with the highest definition our TV will allow. And our TV and cable box should agree that if it isn’t high-def, to not distort the picture. And I should be able to go to my Mac and be able to see all of my channels — including those from and my antenna and Hulu and Amazon and whichever cable channels I have paid for. And the remote control would need to only see one box, turning on all boxes whether or not they see it. (What’s more irritating than turning on one box and turning off another with the same button press!).
