It doesn’t work like that, when it comes to tv distribution, the U.K. is classed as Europe.

We pretty much did that in the UK, and we’re now in an absolutely wretched state over here.

I think there are a lot of other factors at play here and it's not just the UK experiencing it.

That’s why I previously opined that such restrictions are simply window dressing by bureaucrats who don’t really have the will or power to actually create constructive policies. Little nibblings around the edges like this aren’t worth a tinker’s dam in true energy savings compared with the waste and indulgences granted to industrial or military special interests. As long as there’s an override to the settings, no harm no foul I guess.

One major issue that hasn’t been brought up is LED screens/walls used for backgrounds in Hollywood/European productions. Will they be impacted?

Not to worry, Steedeel. Just follow a well known forum member's advice and move somewhere else. Have all the 8K TVs you want; just remember to hardwire them to the internet.

To be fair though, the UK hasn't exactly been blessed with high calibre politicians since the referendum who could at the very least make a go of Brexit - the likes of Johnson, Theresa May, and Liz Truss never inspired much confidence quite frankly, and somehow can't see Sunak doing very much either.

** Have to be careful not to stray into political territory on these threads. So I'll say no more.

If those restrictions are aimed at consumer goods, then yes. They're not banning video walls

We generally see tech being led by the biggest markets, so if a huge portion of your base says, "No." then manufacturers build around that. A bit like how car manufacturers work to California emission vehicle rules for some of their cars even though they're sold elsewhere.

Yes, we see displays with matching model numbers have different tech in different territories, but they're weird anomalies and not regulation led. For some reason it's operating systems (and tuners) that seem to be a factor.

I wouldn't consider the EU government as a huge portion of their base. If it was the consumers that might be one thing but this is be driven by a small number in the EU government.

The same can be said by the crazy CA government's electric vehicle law. The infrastructure requirements to support that demand will not be in place in the US to support that timeline let alone the raw materials to support the battery demand required for all of those vehicles. Once again, CA is trying to force a feel good measure which isn't Green at all. It's time manufacturers gave them the finger and call their bluff.

If the manufacturers say no, do you really think the consumers will go without? I think not as there will be tremendous pressure from their constituents and these governments will end up coming crawling back with their tail between their legs.

Unfortunately we live in an area where we used to have one ceiling light in our living rooms which we had to replace with 27 table lamps as they banned bulbs that do any illuminating. I literally put a bulb in the other day and I could have got more out of A '80s CASIO watch light.

The average consumer isn't going to notice as they're using terrible TV tech in the first place.

What we needed was regulations to grow with the tech, which is something that hasn't happened in this case. Nothing wrong with making things more efficient.
