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

You don't have a handle on what is going on in the real world. Less than 50% have any kind of a sound system. Most of the remaining 50% have a Pro Logic system. Less then 1/3 of the USA has an HDTV - WW is is less than 15%.
BD means replace . . . HD DVD means to merge with because both are evolutionary formats and will never unsurp DVD.
