Default TL51 is official: What do you think will be the 1st commercial TL51 movie HD DVD?

Got this from another forum

Let's assume that TL51 does make it to commercial movie releases, which in turn means we will assume that all players can play TL51...

If so, what do you think will be that first TL51 movie/movie set?


Maybe Titanic? Lord of the rings?

Personally, I think the first release will be a Day & Date only on Twin DVD/HD DVD.

I really hope at least all studios releasing on HD DVD will adopt this format. No more flippers.

I'm more excited about the additional space hopefully being used for more lossless tracks or PCM... I've been very happy with HD DVD's picture quality but I hope this will offer the studios a little more elbow room to upgrade the audio.

Without question Lord of the Rings. Since it isnt finsihed yet there is no reason why they wouldnt go with something like this. They will probably be finished around the same time and its a perfect match. In all honesty tho I expect this to be far more mportant on the computer side and that war has really yet to begin but were rapidly approaching the starting line. With HD DVD set to include HD DVD players in all of the laptops Sony will have to counter with something along the same lines and once that happens it will have offically begun. The fact that HD DVD can advertise actually having more space than BD now is huge huge huge for the computer side. Again HD DVD is just on a good news streak and to be honest I am shellshocked from all of the announcments ofver the last few weeks. HD DVD is like a totaly different format than it was even two weeks ago.

Its looking good for compatibility. The following was posted by Dave Vaughn, an Insider on AVS: http://www.avsforum.com/avs-vb/showt...9#post11592989

Before saying this about Blu-ray might it not be a good idea to find out if TL51 is compatible with current HD DVD players?
Dave Vaughn (Ultimate AV Insider): I have done some checking on this with my industry sources and I have been told that the TL51 discs are compatable with all players out on the market. They ran into some issues with the 45 GB version of the discs, but by changing the angle of the laser, they solved the issues they were having and increased the disc capacity at the same time. This information is for only one source though, but I trust him.
Dave is more of an "outside" insider in the sense that he has a number of contacts in the industry so his word should not be considered to be "official", but he has seemed to be very reliable so I am taking this as a very good sign...

It will probably be either a combo disc or the lord of the rings films. however, it would be nice to have once upon a time in america in high def on one disc.
