Most people you talk to isn't empirical evidence. Everyone has their circle of influence and they're all different.

But it's funny that the majority of people had no problems with the studios picking DVD over Divx.

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?????
You my friend are prophetic! Take a look at this:

I still think you should have.

Granted greg, you know my problem with sources, but I have had both formats for 18 months or so now, and have watched many films in both formats giving the best video available for the last year and a half. I think it was worth the entrance fee.

I also can see your point and how the recent advantages will make you less likely to buy either for fear of losing, but let's face it, do you think I ever thought both would win???

prerich,

I have said this from the start, once I can buy the rights to the film and stream it to my home anytime both formats are dead, because it is convenience, not quality that seem to make new formats fly. Making J6P struggle with firmware updates and slow load times isn't a help, but if I just need to go to any movies site and watch, that's convenient!
