I watch movies on my monitor which doesn't have HDMI and has the DVI and VGA slots. So to me hd-dvd and blu-ray players arent something I can do alot with. How long will it take for drives for these two formats to come out? Will they start off with recordable technology or will they be mean and start of with just the rom drives? I think I might of heard that the public won't be able to record to these discs, is that true?
