That's what I thought too, I wanted to put the new HD-DVD A3 to use, so I put about 20 movies on the queue. I'm hoping to get movies once a week, and watch 3 or 4 per weekend....

Glad it worked out for you guys.

Just be aware that they will purposely throttle the delivery rate if you try to rent a lot of movies in a short period of time...especially while you're not paying.

Netflix is a great deal. I use it for HD-DVD and Blu-ray. I was surprised the rate is the same for HD as SD. I have been very happy with Netflix!


Enjoy your trial membership!

I use Netflix and even gave it as a gift to my friend. He and his family love it now too.

I too use Netflix, but since I got my Toshiba A2 in September, HD DVD titles are either Long Wait or Very Long Wait. I eventually switch a title to DVD if I want to see it bad enough.

We Are Marshal I have yet to receive. If any of you are still holding the HD DVD...can you pleeeease return it?!!

PS: Cool...this is my 100th post! This place rocks!

I have the A30 and it really does a great job on regular DVD's. Always try for HD's But the regular DVD's look so good I take what ever is quickest.

Forget about while you are not paying, as they will throttle you back even when you are paying. This is why I cancelled my Netflix account a while ago. I hate all you can eat plans that don't let you eat all you can. Now I keep getting email from Netflix offering me a free month if I come back to them. No Thanks when I don't even have time to watch all the movies i've recently bought on HD-DVD

I just got the A30 myself. I noticed that the PQ is better on regular DVD's if I have the player set to 1080i, as my TV is better at deinterlacing than the DVD player is. When watching an HD DVD it is better if I put it on 1080p/24. I wish the player had some auto or native setting so I don't have to switch it each time.

Haven't tried the 1080i setting but I will.Not sure if my tv[JVC 61FN97] supports 1080p/24. Been useing the 1080p/60. However I'm not sure all these HD dvd are equal in picture quality. Some just don't look all that great for HD and others just stand heads above the rest.

OK, I'm through 3 of 4 movies, and each one had problems skipping due to crap being on the DVD. One of them, 'You, Me and Dupree' was so bad, we had to change it to the SD side.

Boooo to Netflix for sending out crappy dvds. The dvd sleeves were torn apart, almost falling apart. I couldn't even clean the dvd's...
