    I'll have to agree with Jeff Kleist. Just because the companies promoting Blu-ray doesn't mean that we will see HD-DVD anytime soon.

    IMO, right now, the DVD Forum hasn't decided on what format will be used for HD-DVD.

    I remember seeing something about how there was a Blu-Ray display at some event with 5 or 6 HD quality movies...on one disc. Considering that it can hold as much as it can, is rewriteable, and comes in those cases so you can't scratch the discs, I think Blu-Ray would be in the lead for now.
