Give it a rest David. I'm not a fanatic but you obviously are. You continue to call me names and repeatedly stretch or hide the truth on here. You also taunt and gloat repeatedly in posts where you post in factual manner that HD DVD won't have content available or that retailers don't want 2 formats. It doesn't matter that you can't prove any of that but you continue to do so. You make DVD File look bad every time you gloat/taunt HD DVD owners on here. Do you realise that? I'm sure the people on the fence are getting put off that a "journalist," is so very much biased for no apparent reason.
For everyone else:
TL51 was approved by the DVD Forum for use. In that meeting yields, etc. were shown to the DVD Forum that it was a "marketable commodity." Studios had TL51 plans on major titles that were to be announced (without dates) at CES. We all know what happened. Paramount is going forward with one TL51 title that I know of, and Universal has a few in the works for release this summer.
David's agenda here is to try and make it look like TL51 doesn't work. It's the same BS agenda that HD DVD fanatics (like he tries to call me) used for BD50.
45GBs is considered the point with the codecs being used today for optimum picture, sound, and HD extras. So reaching a 50GB point shows that better content can be provided on a regular basis.
So the other side is always afraid of the other side reaching a solid goal like 45GBs. It's stupid behavior and extremely childish to claim it's never going to exist when you know it's in the pipeline.
Bill Hunt claims the only reason he backs BD is the Studio Support. Which was Woolworth's reason as well.
Studios continue to make our purchasing decision for us no matter what the cost to us the consumer. With a Recession on the horizon that's just bad business.
