Default HD DVD wins the format war!

Ask my Meridian 421 switcher whiched glitched out on me when I rest the DVD player.

Now it only will chose between my Meridian G98 and my HD DVD player!

Wow - that's all it takes to win a format war?

Now go look at the quality of movies you are missing on Blu-ray and go figure out how to make your switcher see that player too!!!

I'm waiting for their player top come out.... We were all hoping they might have made an anouncement @ CEDIA but no luck!

FWIW I reprogrammed the switcher and it is functioning well again, tolerating both BD and HD.

The lovely lady who handles Meridian's sales here in Texas told me that the player will debut at CES and hopefully be out by May. So I'll have to wait to CES to see it.

I want one, but I wish it was a BD player too. I'm still going to use all my wily ways to try and get an early demonstration of it. I really want to see what a company like Meridian can do with a Next Gen format.

I've had a Denon prototype BD player to look at, but I expect truly great things from Meridian.

I take it you use an HDMI switcher for the 861 to play with?
