Regarding the HDTV %'s. It's hard to judge really. Each person has their own sampling method. Example - at the place I work (granted, we only have 15 fulltime) I am the only one with an HDTV. So, I guess that would be 6% or so. In my family (brothers, sisters, folks, aunts, uncles) 3 HDTV's 8 households. 37% I think everyone that comments on the penetration bases their opinions on what they see or feel. Me included. My gut feeling is that if MY DAD has an HDTV, there are likely a hell of a lot of households across the nation with one too.
Low income households rarely have HDTV. SD looks just fine. HD is overrated and for the rich who have a large disposable income. A lot of people also have there Xbox 360 or PS3 hooked up to a SDTV. Would not want to buy an expensive gaming system and an expensive TV.
And content is more important in the TV enjoyment factor then HD.

The HD market is set to grow this year especially in the Camcorders and personal gadgets market.
