This was done probably a year ago and I want to see what has changed. I got my hi def tv not to long ago and am looking to see what most of you would get for a player. My Time Warner hi-def dvr is the only thing I have that can take advantage of it. I am not getting the dual format, $1100 is to much for the dvd player. It seems that the hd dvd has more support, but for the most part the blue-ray is better. Kinda the beta vs. vhs.
