Default slow load

my toshiba hd-dvd player loads so slow that I hardly ever opt to use it. I typically just rent dvd's instead.

You should see how slow the current BD players (excluding the PS3) load BD-Java encoded BD discs. It makes my HD DVD players seem blazing fast.

I turned my automatic loading of BD Live off because I got tired of the load times and I have a PS3. BD Live is going to continue to be a thorn in the BDA's foot until they get it perfected and by then 1080p will be obsolete.

I find my HD-A1 is slower loading HD DVD discs than my BH200 and BD-P1400 are loading Blu-ray, even with Java heavily laden discs. Now, my BDP-S1 is really slow with those discs and I haven't tried to figure out if it is slower than my HD-A1. I am not willing to sit and watch the screen until either player loads, I always leave and come back! My other HD DVD players are much faster than my HD-A1 and I don't know if faster or slower than my faster Blu-ray players. Of course, hands down the PS3 loads everything it plays that I have tried really fast. I still haven't tried anything BD-Live or HD DVD internet interactive to see how loading times for those processes compare.
