Default HD DVD needs to start kickin ass

HD DVD owners we need to start letting retailers management know that we notice that there not supporting hd dvd like they should be . Hell half of them probably don't even realize the difference in product . Hopefully once retailers know that there is a great market out there for hd dvd the'll start to put more hd dvd products for their displays , then more consumers will know about something other then getting brainwashed about bd.

Circuit City is the worst. You have to look into normal dvd to find HD DVD. They mix HD DVD with DVD, but Blu Ray has its own rack. "WTF"

Hell..... HD-DVD isn't even supporting themselves....

So far, CES has been nothing short of an embarrassment for them....

Titles with no dates (like last year).... No new studio support..... 50 gig over shadowed by a 200 gig.... The list goes on....

HD-DVD came onto the scene and gave everyone a woody with the great pricing, the fast firmware updates and the great PQ/AQ on most of the released........ Well...... looks like HD-DVD is pulling up soft like bad viagra.....

They either need to step up and play the game or take their balls and go home....

I disagree. When you get confirmation that a step up brand like Onkyo and Meridian are joining the party things change. Then you have Shinco, Liteon and Venturer. The studios are still hazy on when we're going to get the titles but we know they're coming.

I like the announcement of 51GB discs even though I still think dual 30GB movie sets are a better premium item. The demos of the Web/Networking features are killer and I hope they have this ready by summer.

The projection of 2.5 million HD DVD players sold in 2007 is a great thing. Make no bones about it Blu-ray is going to surpass HD DVD in movies available but this format isn't going anywhere.

Las Vegas, January 2007 Onkyo Corporation today announced plans to launch its first HD DVD player for the North American market in 2007. HD DVD is the next generation DVD format approved by the DVD Forum.
The Blu-ray conference is done I think. There was absolutely nothing that gave me even a hint of jealousy.
