Go read a little history on this forum plz...

It has been discussed alot early this year how Toshiba gamed the HD DVD forum after HD DVD was rejected by having another vote when some of the members were absent (kind of like how Pluto lost its status as a planet.)

Also Toshiba refused to accept a last minute unification deal that would use HD DVD interactivity features with the Blu-ray physical layer.

And for good reason. Blu-ray discs is irreparable once they scratch (and yes they scratch despite a resistant coating). Bad fatal flaw in their physical design.

Hopefully at some point there will be an ELITE player worth buying.

Is there any proof of this? Actual evidence of discs being scratched beyond repair by real users during normal everyday handling?

I've read reports of people trying to scratch them on purpose, but don't recall reading anything from someone who has a disc that's been ruined in normal use.

Genuine question (coming from someone who got another ruined DVD rattler in the post this morning!)

Pioneer Elite components are for the audio/video phile. Their new player will bitstream ALL the new audio formats and the video processing will be one of the best on the market, period. I doubt Pioneer cares much about web-based interactivity and profile compliance. I think they could care less about being pressured to have compliance by a certain date. I could care less about it too. Are there really that many people that buy hi-def discs for the web-interactivity extras? I have heard many arguments about how people. 'want to have it, if it is available' argument. Honestly, between both formats, who really uses those features? Aren't we buying the components to watch movies, or play the games?

Will the current Blu-ray discs allow bitstream advanced codecs? I know the new Pioneer Elite Blu-ray player is HDMI 1.3 along with their new 1.3 receivers but don't the Blu-ray discs have to be authored to allow bitstream audio playback?

Hopefully not but I'm not sure about that one.

What? This is one Pioneer Elite player, and that's not Sony. I'm so confused.

The family doesn't buy Pioneer Elite, they buy Sony.

The DVD Forum did sign on to the Blu-ray Disc Association when 8 of the 10 DVD Forum board members joined the BDA.
