The comparability isn't with the TV's, it's with the older legacy receivers that are unable to decode an MPEG-4 signal. The legacy receivers are only capable of decoding MPEG-2 signals (SD or HD). Once the compression changes to MPEG-4, all the legacy receivers will be unable to decode the video signals.
