Hello all. I've read quite a few helpful facts about the above two new HD formats. It has been written that the new HD players will be backwards compatible with consumers' DVD collection. My question is that are the Blu Ray and HD-DVD discs playable in the current standard DVD players? I for one, own a Denon DVD-2910 player with HDMI and DVI digital outputs. I'm interested in purchasing the newer titles on Blu Ray or HD-DVD. Given this format war, I plan on sitting on the sidelines until they work out the kinks in the first generation players of both formats and come out with a universal player. Thanks in advance. Cheers!
