Quote: That's about it for me as well. I'm mainly a TV/DVD collector of older shows first, and a film collector second since I have nearly all of the films I'm interested in collecting at present. BR hasn't released any older TV/DVD shows except for a few of the mega shows like Star Trek and the original Twlilight Zone series. Good point about the players but as a region-free guy, I'm waiting for the online stores (hard mod'ed BR players) to decrease in price more before looking into buying my 1st BR player. As for the few classics that are out on BR, it's not enough for me to enter the BR mkt yet. The deciding factor for me might be if I saw an increased trend of exclusive BR releases (without a DVD release) of older films that have either never been released in anamorphic format in R1 (and R2) or a specific personal "holy grail" film that's been on my waiting list for years. Same here, with my R-free Pioneer upconvert player. That's been my best home ent purchase after the Plasma TV. I'm basically in the opposite camp as you regarding interest in BR but your point about the Star Wars films is a good one. If the 1st 3 movies (IV, V, VI) are released in their original theatrical formats, and they are anamorphic, that might get me to buy my 1st BR player late in the year. If they are also released in SD DVD though, I'd probably pass on BR. I'm wondering the same thing, given the years that SD DVD has been around, and from what it appears is the upcoming download/streaming mkt about to gain momentum. How long has BR been around? 2-3 years? I've not seen a mass release trend of older movies and particularly older TV/DVD series on BR. That's where my interest resides and that's the main reason I've not entered the BR mkt yet. Quote: Another good point to consider. I can't afford to double-dip again in home film formats. I did some of that when SD DVD arrived after Laserdisc but it's not affordable for me to repeat that with BR, although for my collection of older films and older TV/DVD sets, I've not seen the need to consider that anyway. BR doesn't have much available that interests me yet.
