Hmm. This makes me wish that a zoom control was available in the browser for use with images. I grabbed a copy of the image from the link on your original message and threw it into Preview, then magnified it there, but there just wasn't enough info in the file (its resolution is 640 x480) to see any detail on the covers. There appears to be different numbers of tracks on the disks (There looks like 10 tracks on "yellow" versus 8 tracks on "orange" and 3 tracks after these on each. There appears to be 3 tracks on the black disk). Is there common High Definition A/V content between HD DVD and Bu-ray disks to make a judgement call?

Sound seemed to be the same, but the video looked better on blu-ray.

If they did a separate video encode for Blu-ray, the video should be at least marginally better IF they max'ed out the available bandwidth. Or the placebo effect is in play....

I watched a Blu-ray DTS HD MA demo at RMAF and the installer tried to "imply" I was listening to DTS HD MA rather than the 1.5 mbs core. Then I started to ask him hard questions about the Sony player because at the time, NONE of the Blu-ray players could decode/bitstream DTS HD MA. Nevertheless, the Peter Gabrielle DTS demo sounded pretty good. Was Peter on the Halcro-provided demo disks ?

Yes, you probably heard one the discs I have.

All 3 have the same Peter Gabrielle demo.

I have not seen the videos, so I cannot comment on the picture quality of them. What I have noticed in past content is that the hardest tests of HD format though is motion of items that contain surface details. The compressors seem to blur the details of the surfaces in an unnatural way.
