But things got worse when I suggested that he buy a $129 HD DVD player. Oh, my god - It was if I asked him to spend $10,000. "And what if the format fails and Blu-ray wins?" I said "so what - rent discs from Netflix if you are that worried - that costs another $5 a month"

Seriously, how can ANYONE sit on the fence. A Samsung BR player is $279. A Toshiba HD DVD player is less than $200. C'mon - people.... BUCK UP. Holidays are for HD aren't they?
Man I thought I was cheap!!!! This person may not just be cheap but may also be cheep (as in the sound a little bird makes, like a baby chicken)! If you guys have stuff to give away just for people to try it - I will "buck up" for ya ! I have High Def over the air through my PC, over my Mediacom cable, and both Next Gen formats!
