Default Re: Will Meridian make an HD DVD player?

DaVID Boulet,

I think I am one of the only ones here who is in favor of Blu-ray, though with all the BS I've been putting up with trying to keep firmware up to date with each new movie release I must admit I am starting to switch camps...

The HD DVD players I have work, some very slowly, but they work. I got FF Rise of the Silver Surfer from Netflix, and guess what? Won't play in either of my BRD Players so I am off to download firmware, which BTW is designed ONLY for PC users so us MAC fans have an entire other level of BS to go through to do this....

Yes, I feel BR has some obvious advantages, but so far the software transfers to HD DVD have in general looked better. NOTE I said in general, there are excellent transfers in BOTH formats and some not so good.... Classic case in point. Fifth Element was pretty lame, so lame SOny actually swapped them out if you got an older copy! An unheard of event!
