Joe 6pac here. A month ago I didn't even know what blu ray was or had any concern. All I wanted to do was, begin to upgrade my vhs collection to dvd in anticipation of a hi def tv purchase. Then I found this site. Man, am I behind the curve. Presently it appears that I should curtail any further spending to those titles that are "must have" (Dune, tv version, King Kong, early ver)and perhaps the older films and tv series that may not make the blu ray/hdtv cut (Lexx). I do understand that at some point I will have to adopt the new format. The new players will most likely only be produced to utilize both formats for the first few years. Would certainly appreciate any advice or direction regarding where my present dvd purchasing should be placed. Thanks.
