I know this may sound silly, as I have an HDTV and can't wait for better quality video by the way of HD-DVD but I'm just not prepared to see all my dvd's go obsolete! I've been collecting for years now and have a little over 300 dvd's. I was not aware that HD-DVD would be started so unbelievably soon, I was thinking that it wouldn't even have begun till around 2006 but alas there is much talk right now about a possibly 2003 release (AND HOPEFULLY ONE ONE FORMAT ONLY!!!!). Should I expect to immediately see studios such as Warner releasing all their catalog titles quickly on the HD-DVD format? Should I expect these 2-disc special editions they put out that I am picking up today (Amadeus, Unforgiven, etc.) to be immediately re-released in much better looking editions the moment the HD-DVD format begins? I definitely want HD-DVD but I'm just a bit scared about what will happen to all of my current dvd's.... And one other thing, you will need an HDTV to properly view HD-DVD correct? I suppose in that case it might be get to hang on to all of my old dvd when HD-DVD starts. Then friends and neighbors that borrow my movies would still be able to watch them as I know noone with an HDTV (besides myself of course). Give me your thoughts on this, thanks!
