Talking Do you want HD-DVD Back or Not

I really hope HD-DVD would make a come back.

and I really have some good suggestions for pricing for HD-DVD which will rip Sony's pants off.

But at the end it is toshiba which has to implement it.

If I am going to have an impossible dream I'd rather it be about naked women and New Castle Brown Ale.

It would be nice but only a pipe dream due to lack of studio support.

Believe me the Studios who joined the Blu-Ray are IDIOTS.

Look at the price of the Discs which we are going to pay.

There is a simple technique which can reduce the price of Blu-Ray as well.

Why the hell couldnt they implement some free codecs like Vorbis,Theora,Dirac,Speex and FLAC

I guess they are using standardized codecs, so that they know most of their discs will play on most players.

I disagree with the statement, that the studios are idiots. Greedy maybe, but not idiots.

Standardize.

Then Why not standardize the Free ones(no patent issues)

Instead of them implementing the codecs from MPEG,DOLBY,DTS and pay a fee to them for the usage of their codec, When they can put that money in R&D of the free codec and reduce the prices.

At this point I really think If TOSHIBA does this it will be more than successful than BluRay(SONY).

And just how long do you think those codecs would be supported by their makers for free? What incentive would those developers have to generate better technology? That is a failed idea before it was even considered. Sorry.

Maybe the standardized ones are better?

I was a big fan of the HD DVD format myself, but it just ain't coming back period. A movie player without new movies to play on it is nothing more than a paper weight, so even if Toshiba brought the format back, it would still be mostly used as an upscaler since no new movies will be released for a HD DVD player. They do make nice upscalers though.

I don't think HD DVD ever left, it's just been on a long hiatus. It would take a campaign similar to bringing back a TV show. If enough people support it ,it CAN be reincarnated. You got my vote ,I never even considered selling my Toshiba HD DVD ,besides my wife would kill me. It was a birthday present....

Do you want HD-DVD Back or Not?

Sure . . .

And I would like to be 30 again.

Not much chance of either of those happening though.
