I really wish people would stop holding up digital downloads as the eventual solution for the format wars. Paying $1 to download a single music track is one thing, but downloading a 1080p HD movie with 7.1 lossless surround sound is entirely different. I've invested thousands in my custom built home theater room, and I am not going to settle with holding a EULA (End User License Agreement) in order to lease a movie to watch on my system. I collect movies and music on disc, and I have no intention on stopping this practice.
The overall sonic quality of music has been dumbed down by downloading, MP3s and Ipods. SACD and DVD-Audio failed due to the ongoing format fight and overall consumer confusion, and I don't want that to happen to the successor for DVDs. We need an HD format to succeed quickly, and Blu-ray is right there.


I just want the complete transition to Blu-ray to be quick, so we can all get back to enjoying the HD movie experience without worrying about the format.

If it's irrelevent, then why are you chastising me for deciding I'd rather wait for downloads than embracing a format I do not believe in?

I've got a pretty fat internet pipe coming into my place so I'm ready to roll, all I need is the content.
I didn't chastise you.

You said that downloads would create "a problem" for BD media.

It doesn't. That was my only point. You can enjoy downloads while I enjoy BD. Neither media channel negates the other. Win-win. Chastising wasn't anywhere in my message. Re-read it.

The New York Times has declared HD DVD dead ...

"SAN FRANCISCO HD DVD, the beloved format of Toshiba and three Hollywood studios, died Friday after a brief illness. The cause of death was determined to be the decision by Wal-Mart to stock only high-definition DVDs and players using the Blu-ray format."
