brolin_empeyCalling composite video output “TV output” seems anachronistic because modern television receivers have inputs for the same RGB video signals used by computer equipment, both analog and digital RGB.08:47

sixwheeledbeastI mean it's called what it was called 10 years ago when the product was new. It's not like many people call 8p8c by it's technically correct name either.10:50

brolin_empeysixwheeledbeast: The situation was the same a decade ago.  It should be called composite video output because that is what it is.15:57
sixwheeledbeastbrolin_empey: we all know what it is not everyone will use the full technical name we all know what the product is and does.16:04
sixwheeledbeastWe don't call alkaline batteries "cells" either even tho they are not batteries.16:06
KotCzarnyafair there is something like "AA cell"16:07
KotCzarnyand i guess Duracell might be direct result of it16:07
*** ketas has joined #maemo16:08
sixwheeledbeastPeople generally don't call them cells tho. all the documentation, schematics and Wikipedia call it TV out as a short name. I think we all know it's CVBS16:08
sixwheeledbeastIf i said CVBS or composite connection to someone with no technical knowledge they would look at me blankly. What does that mean.16:09
sixwheeledbeastMy RJ45/8P8C connector example earlier is equally incorrect but common usage. at least tv out isn't "incorrect" just generally vague.16:11
KotCzarnynow we have internet-tv16:13
KotCzarnywhich can be watched on just any device with screen and capable of decoding16:13
sixwheeledbeastindeed and micro-hdmi16:13
KotCzarnyso twisted pair can be tv cable now16:14
KotCzarnysame as wifi16:14
