if you guys go non-hybrid blu-ray or hd-dvd.... you guys may be looking at laserdisc/sacd type sales

    dvds are less than 10 years old.... make sure you allow the marketplace to
    trickledown before you go whomping up some new shit.

    my advice? go hybrid blu-ray/dvd or hybrid hd-dvd/dvd... otherwise? your
    hype will waste a lot of your money that you have to charge back to the
    consumer.... doing the hybrid is a failsafe method... one that means when
    someone picks up a dvd for their family... it plays in their player... no
    matter what.

    50 gigabytes sounds great. When does it become a viable backup?

    I was thinking that as of now Blu-Ray and HD-DVD will only be a niche
    regional market mostly for North America or Japan (Note for Blu-Ray,
    and North America are the same region) until the rest of the world
    on to hi-def. For example, Europe has gone digital, but they are
    with 480p for the most part (SD). There's only one major satellite
    there in hi-def, the Belgian-based Euro1080. BBC is mainly producing
    programs for worldwide export so far.

    So is it doomed to fail? Plus this, you'd better have HDMI or we
    down-convert stuff bothers me. This would render my dad's older analog
    hi-def Philips set useless.

    We should have DVD Audio and/or SACD as default right now. The major
    that most standard *DVD* players will not play DVD Audio is absolutely
    absurd to me right now.
