    I wish I was that strong!
    I felt the same way until we got the LCOS Sony XBR2 60" set in the house. A week later it was off to Xbox 360 land just so we could get the HDDVD player for HD viewing........sigh. [​IMG]
    Even funnier, I think Blu Ray is the way to go.[​IMG]

    I am not as strong on holding stances as I was when I was young.

    Quit what? They never produced a player in 2006. The HDV5000 was a rebadged Toshiba.

    Well since I've never seen an RCA electronics appliance that I liked/wanted, I'm not going to lose much sleep over this. [​IMG]

    Didnt RCA make 78s? RCA and HT almost sound like a contradiction in terms. Almost like Ford saying it wont make anymore good cars.

    As another poster pointed out, the RCA was nothing more than a rebadged Toshiba and (IIRC) the only retailers selling the players were Sears and Wal-mart. Perhaps they should been a little more clear and said that they are no longer MARKETING any HD-DVD players. [​IMG]

    I wonder if anyone has passed this information along to Meridian and Onkyo since they have announced nothing. Maybe they don't know about it.

    I guess soon we'll see cars where a semi-transparent HD image is projected onto the inside of a 1.78:1 windshield with the help of a mini-projector mounted on the overhead console. [​IMG]
