Hi all. I didn't really find a thread that focused on how Blu-Ray and/or HD DVD adoption has affected your SD DVD purchasing. I thought that this thread might not only be useful to the members of the HTF, but could also be of potential interest to the studios as well. Now that I have taken the plunge with HD DVD, the decision to purchase a SD DVD has become a lot more complicated for me. The studios are doing there part to make the decision as difficult as possible by avoiding day and date announcements on titles, the most notable example of this is V for Vendetta. Furthermore, these studios almost seem to be going out of their way to make the release dates for their titles a mystery. While I'm not really sure how they think this helps adoption of their product, it is a problem we have to live with in the short term and persuade them to fix for the long term. Of the four HD DVD titles I own, I also own all four on SD DVD. This makes sense because I'm not buying titles to just look at the pretty pictures, if I want to do that I will rent them, but I bought them because I truly enjoy the films themselves. Of those four SD DVD, three of them I hadn't even gotten around to watching. Now, I realize this is a MP (my problem), but it sort of underscores my point. With so much product out there, where do you draw the line if you've taken the plunge on high definition pre-recorded media? Until recently, I thought I was safe still buying classics on SD DVD. For example, I recently purchased the John Wayne John Ford Film Collection not really expecting any of those titles to be released in HD DVD anytime soon. Low and behold, yesterday I see an unofficial announcement that The Searchers will be coming to HD DVD. So, perhaps classics are still safe, but only the more obscure ones? I'm almost to the point where I want to hold off buying any new SD DVD, even if it comes from a studio that doesn't support my chosen format (HD DVD), with the possible exception of SD DVDs that come from the independents (e.g. Anchor Bay Entertainment, Blue Underground, Criterion, etc.) This is a frustrating situation made tolerable by HD bliss, but I could use some suggestions on how to cope, and I'm sure others could too, if you got them. Thanks.
