Here's the list I have so far of demo/promo discs (on post #3). I know it's not complete, so if you or anyone else see any omissions then let me know.

Also I plan to separate the "home brew" (post-format war era burned movies) titles out and make a list with those together (although with a few of the latest releases like All in the Game and Dementia.

Hi Bruce.

I have gone through all the HD DVD demos/promos in my collection and compared to your list and I think I have found 3 more to add.

1. EMI Promo

2. Universal Branding Disc Dated 1/25/07 - different date than one you have listed.

3. DTS HD-DVD Demo Disc 2006 - IFA, this one only has 3 tracks and I believe was given away at the IFA conference in Germany vs the one given away at CES which has 5 tracks.



As a comparison, here is the picture of the back of both the IFA (on left) and CES (on right) versions
