This thread is to make helpful suggestion to prevent double dipping in our new HD disc world. Feel free to voice your opinions or concerns on stopping double dipping in HD disc formats. If you feel said suggestions will not prevent you for double dipping on a HD disc title: DO NOT POST HERE! Make your own; "Why to double dip in HD" thread. Thank you. 1. non-1080p transfer (even though a 1080i transfer will look stunning, you'll 'need' that 1080p version to match the 1080p display thats in you future, if not today) 2. non-lossless audio soundtrack (even if your equipment can not at this time handle lossless audio, you will want this feature in the future when your equipment can) 3. EE or filtering (do not allow the studios to release poorly mastered video AGAIN!) 4. Bare bones edition (for previous released films, we know what extras are out there. HD version must contain all available extras. Or, as we all know, some Ultimate Edition is coming our way) 5. MPEG 2 (this as so falls into the extras category. Newer codecs will have more space. Plus, you can guess a "superbit" will certainly follow a MPEG 2 release) For me its not 'just' about money. It is, when I could have purchased a new title with those funds. However, it is also very frustrating to have to keep buying the same titles over & over again. Not even getting to enjoy a release, thinking something better is coming down the pipe, at a later date. Here is to a GREAT future in HD!!!
