I keep saying, most people want to watch a movie, see a great picture, get great sound, and that is it.
Now, theyhave all this to deal with. Will HD growth be affected, I don`t really know. But, maybe slowed a little. I know what though, if tv content was really good, people would hesitate buying players, and just watch on satelitte and cable, order movies on demand, and record them to their HD DVRs. But, no one wins here at all. Its a big mess, and rather than continuing to argue about these two formats that should have never been, what damage will be done now to the marketplace, when the word finally gets out to the masses?????
