Just noticed Samsung has announced a $1,000 HD-DVD player while Toshiba has a $500 one out. At least the Toshiba is backwards comp, but the Samsung has an HDMI out :blink:

Just wondering if anyone has any thoughts on the eternal (at least for the time being) question of HD DVD vs. Blu-Ray and how long they are going to blow smoke up our ass/release titles then switch over to HVD or some other gimmick?

When you've experienced a print projection of Lawrence of Arabia, aren't you just fighting for scraps off the table discussing 480p vs 1080p playback on a 55" monitor?!

As a side note: I'm thinking about, cutting out the middle man by knocking down one of my walls and just installing a 35mm projection/surround set-up in my 1 bedroom apartment. So I can send my TV/DVD/PS2/PS3/HD-DVD/BD/HDV set up over the balcony!
