I found this post by Amir to be interesting. My take had been that the door was basically closed on the possibility of TL45 HD DVD because it wasn't in the specs. But it seems that it is still a possibility if absolutely needed. from a thread at AVS forum: http://www.avsforum.com/avs-vb/showt...&&#post8125574 I found that last paragraph (bold emphasis mine) to be quite an interesting statement. But it makes me wonder. Why not just do the work to get it definitely part of the format's specs and use that to try to woo current BD only studios like Disney back to HD DVD instead of waiting for Disney to ask them to do it in order for them to come over? That's like a hot girl hoping a guy will ask her out, but she waits for him to come to her. The guy never does because he thinks she is out of his league and not interested, so he just never asks. If the girl realized how dense guys can be and made it clear she was interested, then he would probably ask her out. If it is true that HD DVD45 can be added with relatively little effort, why not just do it instead of waiting for studios to ask them to. The studios may not know to ask if they don't know that it is a definite option if they want it. Does that make sense? Even if it if wouldn't be necessary all that often, why not just put in the effort to give the format that extra flexibility? HD DVD30 is used as the typical/standard for most stuff. HD DVD15 is used occasionally when there simply is no need to go dual layer. HD DVD45 is used occasionally when they really would benefit from a little extra space if the studio wants to load the disc up with a super amount of extra crap. I think the format can do just fine with 30, but why not give them the option of 45 if it really is possible and (reportedly) not too difficult to make happen?
