afterall..."I" am the one who's now stuck with an HD-DVD and my 5 free HD-DVD movies from Toshiba! Looks like HD-DVD is buried now that both NetFlix and WalMart have both decided this week to carry only BluRay discs.

Oh well...I'm only out the $98 that I spent on the player, I guess.

I don't get why so many more people favored Blu-Ray over HD DVD even though Blu Ray machines cost at least twice as much. Blu-Ray may yet go away as costly as the machines still are.

Me thinks the major studios backed blu-ray because of the additional anti-pirating abilities?? I don't but anything anymore because of DRM. It's really turned me off to the entire film/music industry!
