Default When are the extras going to be 1080p?

Isn't it about time all Blu Ray discs had the extras in 1080p? It's especially annoying if you import with extras being in PAL.

They can only be delivered in a format they're shot in. If they're not, they can't be.

Many threads about this already. Do a search.

Now you are just beeing stupid. Most movies are filmed on 35mm tape that can be scanned in huge resolutions. Many extras on the other hand are filmed with SD formats and can never be in high-def. Especially those what are made for TV.

Just an FYI, but HD extras typically aren't 1080P. They're normally 1080i as 1080P isn't a broadcast standard. Also, Pal countries shoot at 50i and NTSC countries shoot at 60i, so the framerates are still different. There are certainly HDTVs that can handle 50i in addition to 60i, but I'm not sure how an NTSC Blu-Ray player would handle outputting 50i.
