RIP HD-DVD. Yes I am probably the only person here who has an HD-DVD player and both formats delivered superb picture quality. I will keep my hd player, as DVD will continue it's long run and the quality can be upconverted.

Absolutely, don't get rid of that player. It upconverts DVDs better than regular players, so definitely no need to ditch it.

Our TV is maybe 6 years old. I don't know if it's HD or not. I should look at the manual when I get home.

Wow, I'm so far behind. Last week I taped the Westminster Kennel Club show on three VHS tapes. Our main TV is smaller than Phil's computer screen. I do use Comcast On Demand to buy movies though!

If you have Comcast, you should get their DVR box. It's definitely worth it.

And you won't need three VHS tapes for one dog show anymore, either.

Our TV isn't HD. It's about 7 years old. Eh. I can wait.

I have it, it just doesn't work b/c I don't pay for that. My remote and my box has DVR controls, but it won't actually record for me. Dog shows are the only thing I record (for future reference, not just to see what I missed). All my other shows are on On Demand for free.

I hope so, though, for me, it makes no difference because I have a measly 19" CRT television. (Poor college student here)

I don't plan on using BluRay for much besides as a more spacious format for data backups from my PC.

What we need is some news on when there will be any U2 Blu-Ray releases.

Rattle and Hum was released, but then Paramount switched aliegance to HD-DVD (just before I got a Blu-Ray player in December). Hopefully they will switch back very soon.

Unfortunately I don't think there are many U2 concerts that have been captured on a HD source format. Whereas a lot of band have captured early conerts on film (even it's only 16mm), U2 to have got almost everything down on SD video.

The Vertigo concerts must have been filmed in HD, doubt Elevation was, though checking th closing credits of Slane Castle and the concert was at least partially shot on 16mm and 35mm film.

UABRS, Popmart, ZooTV were all definitely just shot on SD video.
