    Codecs for extras

    Disregarding 1080i/p extras (which are cool, but unnecessary). Does anyone have any idea why they still use MPEG2 for 480i/p extras? VC1 or AVC would be much more efficient with the space. Every little bit counts.

    I can't Believe....

    I can't believe that I took the plunge (or the Red Pill) and bought the Toshiba A2 HD DVD player. I was shaking in happiness so much I got a headache. Spent the whole time re-arranging the wires to my home theater and educating my fiance on which buttons to press for TV and DVD. All to just...
