Onkyo dropping HD-DVD support
 
Onkyon dropping HD-DVD support

From Gizmodo

Onkyo appears to be the latest HD DVD defector, announcing they're "suspending" support for the format. This comes on the heels of Blu-ray and Warner's coup de grace and less than a year after Onkyo announced its lone HD DVD player, the DV-HD805. They haven't closed the door all the way, but does anyone else see Onkyo "resuming" support for HD DVD?

For someone who thinks HD DVD is dead, you sure spend a lot of time posting about it.

A forum is for posting information, that's what I'm doing & I'm providing links to back them up.
I'm not making this stuff up & it's not coming from a friend a guy I know used to work with.
It's not my problem if you don't like the news.

I don't think HD-DVD is dead, I think it's on life support & the sooner it dies the better it will be for HDM.

You forgot to put the question mark after the title like the article did since they do not know. The info I got back in Dec. was Onkyo was in the process of making a dual format player.

This applies only to the UK by the way. Robert Zahn was the noninsider with the info. So if you are producing a combo player as the above article strongly states does that mean you are dropping support for hddvd? I will let the Moose comb through the internet to find that out.

Let's be friendly here!

Moose doesn't need that kind of response. Onkyo is SUSPENDING their 2nd Gen HD DVD player. The only way they will green light it again is if a 3rd Studio appears. This isn't really news but more common sense.

Sure that wasn't Captain Jack Scagnetti?

I'll fall over if someone gets this one.........
