I understand Wes's point, but I'm with you rlpiii, I have a Toshiba HD-A20 and the LG drive in my HTPC (as I mentioned before), and when I decide to buy a Blu-Ray player I will gunning for a combo unit to hedge my bets for continued playback of my HD-DVD library.
Wes, the way I figured it, after a couple years of use the HD-A20 will have paid for it's self through playback of the 2 dozen or so HD titles I have (and at $9.99, more on the way), but also the hundreds of SD DVD's that I have and the Toshiba up-converts beautifully.
