    So it's a tweaked rebadge, with a universal player coming later.

    Finally.

    HD-DVD desperately NEEDS more CE manufacturer support.

    Hopefully impresssive sales of the A2 will inspire others to follow suit.

    Onkyo states they are "hoping to get a universal player in the future". [​IMG]

    Isn't the Panasonic a tweaked rebadge of the Sony? Please correct me if I am wrong.

    I don't now. I will have to see it first (not a picture, but in person). Of the currently sold players I think the Sony takes the cake for the fugliest (is that a word[​IMG] ) player on the market (old model. I have yet to see the new Sony), and the Pioneer as the best looking player. Just my opinion. Never much cared for the George Forman fryer look of the PS3, although it is shinny.

    You're wrong![​IMG]

    You may be thinking of the Pioneer, and I'm not even sure it's true of that. But I remember when people suggested that.

    What ever became of those RCA HD DVD players that were rebadged Toshibas?

    I think RCA dropped out of the market.

    Yeah. RCA basically said "wake me when it's over" in reference to the format war (Thomson is on both sides).
