Hi DD,

BUT...will a new HD or BD player play my existing 80+ DVD-A discs ?

If it will then great....I'm happy.
If it won't then I'm not buying as I don't want to see the investment in those discs orphaned because the format is ignored in future hardware. And I don't want to be trapped into running at least two machines doing the same job...spinning discs.

Like I said before, when the price you pay for hi-end players on new formats is not small, it rubs me the wrong way to find myself suckered by the format war.

Will it happen with HD/BD ? Who knows. You wouldn't bet your house on it.
