At this point in time I would love to be a cheerleader in this forum, throwing my support behind the new high-definition formats... I don't feel compelled to support these two formats at this time. I'm also very curious why there are those of you who are. Don't get me wrong -- I'm not here to take potshots at either format. You see, like most of you, I have been through the advent of new formats many times before. All of us know what to expect from the manufacturers and the studios and I'm sort of surprised that so many of you have indicated you will jump on board with one of these formats in 2006. First of all, buying a player in its first year of production can be compared to buying a car in its first year. You know that not only are there going to be bugs, but next year's model will be vastly improved at a cheaper price. We also have heard that the initial HD-DVD/BLU-RAY releases from the studios may be bare-boned. Give it a year or two and these titles will be re-released as Special edition product. Then there's still the problems concerning those of us who do not have compatable televisions to play these discs on thanks to the HDMI standards that have been set in place. I'm not dooming this format at its inception, but I can't help but feel worried about jumping on the HD bandwagon this early. As of now, standard DVD -- especially on players that can upconvert -- look pretty damn good. Personally, I'd rather for all the kinks to be worked out as well as the availability of a universal player that can play both formats. I'd like to hear your thoughts about whether you plan to support or wait on High Definition DVD in 2006. Please vote and share your thoughts in writing.
