Don't waste your time pleading to us to support blu-ray. Plead to the BDA to get their act together and get affordable players with proper features onto the market, then we can talk.
ive posted this above but ill do it again 4 your benifit,
Dont you realize that ALL products come down in price over time. Sure not everyone has a 1080p hdtv or has the ability to decode the new hd audio formats, but wouldnt you like to HAVE that ability in your player once you DO get a 1080p set and an new sound system. Think of when dvd's first came out. How many people had dolby digital 5.1 systems??? not many but the dvd players had the ability to play dd 5.1 and now everyman and his son has a 5.1 system. So yes blu ray is more expensive at the present time than hd dvd but in time the prices will fall and at least you know you are buying into a format with a LONG and successful future ahead of it that Will display 1080p and WILL be able to play true hd and DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 when YOUR home theatre system catches up with blu ray technology
