Default Blockbuster & HD-DVD

Does anyone know how I can figure out which Blockbuster stores carry HD-DVD? Their website only lists stores with Blu-Ray, but I know they have 250 stores in the US with HD-DVD.

Phone the stores and ask. And when they say no ask why the hell not. It's time we started 'educating' the retail world about where the real demand is!

I just recently was told by my closest Blockbuster that there is one near us that rents HD DVD (6 miles away). I keep meaning to check it out, but frankly I have trouble keeping up with my netflix HD DVD rentals, so I haven't really had much need.

I actually stoped in there last night and was shocked to see any HDM available but they were stocking both HD DVD and Blu-Ray. I was looking at what was being rented as they only had one copy of each title and it was clearly in HD DVD's favor although not a ton overall had been rented. I counted maybe 8 HD DVD's that had been rented and 1 copy of SM3 that had been rented for Blu-Ray. At the cash they had about 6-10 available HD DVD's for sale and one copy of Cars that was shoved in behind a few copies of the Departed on HD DVD. I'm from Prince Edward Island in Canada so we're a small province but they were really stocking up on HD DVD over Blu-Ray. Not trying to start a battle I know the sales for both sides aren't very high but at our Blockbuster they clearly support HD DVD.

If you rent from blockbuster online>sign in>collections>right pane scroll down till you get to HD DVD.
My local stores don't stock either so I just get mine online. Good deal too.
