    I was thinking, if there are current limits on video and audio quality of DVD's due to storage space on the disc, why not put the audio and video on two separate discs?

    It would require a player that could simultaneously play two DVD's. I would image there should be a way to encode a sync sequence on the discs to coordinate the audio and video discs.

    The only up front cost of this system would be the two disc players. But it would allow less compression of both the video and audio and still be produced on 5" discs.

    What would be the advantage of sticking with 5" discs if they could only be watched on a new kind of player? I think that squeezing more information on the current sized discs by coming up with a different kind of laser sounds like a much better idea. If size of the disc was the only remaining hurdle to hi definition dvd I'd rather have one larger disc than two smaller ones. Separate audio and video discs would confuse me, and if I have to think twice about something ht related your average person who couldn't figure out how to program the clock on their VCR would be completely lost.

    Maybe they should simply change the size of DVDs to LDs. Just imagine how much data they could hold then. [​IMG]
