Oh and I love this post all together. You say "the one person at Toshiba" in your "investigation" but then rip Bill Hunt for not naming anyone.

Just as there was no reason the BD DLs shouldn't have worked fine (but some online were saying wouldn't work with their players). It's more negativity from opposing camps because they fear losing or some nonsense.
Or you could choose to believe Bill Hunt over at digitalbits who says it "may or may not," work. That's about as fence riding as you can get. He quotes people saying it won't, but then covers his tail with the "maybe it will." He also can't quote an actual person because the person talking likely doesn't know so they say "no you can't quote me."
