Default What Are You Doing With Your HD-DVD Add On?

Do you still use it, is it boxed up, did you sell it? After I got a few stand alone HD-DVD players I connected my add-on to my PC. I never really used it to watch movies (I would rather watch them in the living room), but I guess I thought it would be cool just being able to do it. I also used the drive to read DVD-ROMs and what not. However now I have an HD-DVD/BD-ROM combo drive in my PC, so now the add on just sits in my basement.

I kinda wished I sitll used it for my 360, because I actually do need to extra USB ports for my Live Vision Camera, but I never used it on my 360 anyway. It's also hooked up to my PC now, where it is never used. At least I still use the remote that came witht he add on drive!

I still use it. I don't have an HDTV at school with me (not enough room in the dorms), so I don't have a reason to bring a stand alone player.

Use it in my bedroom with Xbox 360 to watch HD DVD movies there. And my standalone in the livingroom.

Mine is still connected to my 360, so when I go out of town and take my 360 with me, the hd add-on comes too (since at least 3/5 of my hd's are things I don't have in sd dvd).

When I get my new place, the stand alone will go in the bedroom and the 360 in the living room with the add-on (with roommates right now).

I pretty much use mine as a extra USB port. I still have a bunch of HD DVD movies I have not watched. So many toys so little time.

I have one on each Xbox360, One on my HTPC, One on my main PC, One in my car that I hook to my laptop when I am on the road. I use the PC ones to add subtitles to non english discs (where I can find the subs) and the XBox ones whenever I run into a disc that one player or another has an issue playing (MY 805 won't play Winx but the Xbox does just fine..Which is weird as Bruce's 805 plays Winx just fine)

Huh? IF you don't have an HDTV then what good would the HD-DVD add on do for you?

I have some movies that I only own on HD DVD, this way I'm still able to watch them.
