Wouldn't the greatest power savings be achieved by detecting when there is nobody in viewing range of the TV and turning off the display?

If you're going to use RGB LEDs to time-multiplex the colors, are you not very close to just having an RGB LED screen without the LCD?

Code monkey: you have a simple and elegant solution. Know anybody out there that's on the road to making this happen?

It's only a matter of time before backlights are built with RBG LEDs that time-multiplex the colors. Color filters, which convert 2/3 of the white light to heat, will go away. So there's your power savings and/or increased brightness. They just need fast LCD response time and new frame buffer chips.

Probably OLED displays will replace LCD's some time in the future if they can reduce the power consumption without any reduction in the performance.

Let's hope that new standards don't force mfgrs to produce a bunch of dull TV's.. Seems like they should have a "I don't care about energy savings" button on there.
