Default Harry Potter HD-DVDs have bit the dust.

Well what I was hoping wouldn't happen did. I have the HP movies 1-5 on HD DVD. All of them have a spot ( or several ) where the disc will freeze or just stop altogether .
Guess I'll have to get them on BD.

Same with mine. I replaced the first five with Blus a few years ago.

No clue. The discs are pristine. No dirt or scratches.

HD DVD was fraught with software issues and I started getting those sorts of errors.

No. I have tried them in different players as well. Same thing.

for movies and a player that is around 6-7 years old, you got your monies worth. I don't know anyone who still has a working Blu ray player from pre 2008.

Sad but True and, what lays in store for this next generation HD hardware, in terms of longevity early reports were no very positive for OLED panels are really still researching. Products brought to market early are questionable of the full potential of OLED , when will the displays reach their full potential for US ? I'm certain these new panels will be $$$$ for the first year or so, till production rate reaches possible consumers demands / limits.

I'll have to check to see if mine still play on the XA2, but not worried since I have all my Warner HD DVD backed up on a hard drive (should go ahead and copy that back up as well on another drive).

I could easily check as well to see if it will burn once again to ISO using my xbox 360 HD DVD drive, but I have found that that drive is more forgiving and so will be more likely to play than on the XA2. Same goes for the LG BH200: a few movies that wouldn't play on the XA2 would play on it.

I have TMT3 and PowerDVD5 which will play HD DVD off the computer, so I can easily play my entire HD DVD collection off of pure software if I wanted to. Nothing to break down or rot there.

In practice, I find it is useful to have several different drives and players around. (Though I don't have any hd-dvd discs). A disc that pukes on one drive/player, may play fine on another drive/player.

It saves time and trouble on exchanging/returning discs.

Both my A2s and A3 have crapped out. They wouldn't play HD DVDs or DVDs. Threw them out along with the 200 HD DVDs we had.

What would be amusing and sad at the same time, is something like this happening 10 or 20+ years from now for dvd and/or bluray.
