Question New combo player other than the LG?

Just wondering if anyone has heard of plans for other combo players since it looks like the LG one isn't up to hd dvd standards and will be delayed or cancelled.

Not that I know of. Just LG so far, I think.

I heard there other companies working it. Specifically the one I've read about is Samsung. Samsung already has an HD DVD licensed PC (which makes me think it won't be an incomplete attempt like LG's.)

In addition to Samsung, who has been going back and forth indicating a dual player for a while, Pioneer has also hinted at working on a dual format solution, but it won't be the BDR-103 as speculated upon:

There was also a rumor about Panasonic, but that was just a rumor:

yea, no hard news on anything particular yet and depending on how it goes, I think this war might be over sooner then later that it might not be worth it for companies.
