    dgycan - Shouldn't having a 1080i or 1080p player be the consumer's decision? When and if I get a 1080p TV, I could get a 1080p player then and move the older player to a bedroom or something like that.

    To be honest, I think we're all missing this answer:

    Is D-War even filmed in 1080p? What about Planet Earth? What about Rattatoulie?
    Exactly. Early adopters must be loving their upscaled Driving Miss Daisy BR/HD-DVDs. I bet it looks awesome on their 720p/1080i televisions!

    What does being "filmed" in 1080p mean to you? HD movies are filmed in resolutions greater than 1080p, and anything on film can most definately be mastered in resolutions up to four times that as well.

    Unfiltered, have you watched all those movies or are many still in the shrink wrap?

    Not if the decided specs for the format don't allow it. Whether it's a decision bases on quality or just perceived quality, there are things in EVERY SECTOR of the consumer electronic world that are decided for us. It's much better for a format to sell a player that works at maximum level on ALL displays than the other way around.

    My first DVD player couldn't do the following:

    - Output DTS
    - Output Progressive Scan Video
    - Handle Seamless Branching
    - Upconvert to "I'll never own one - too expensive" HDTV resolutions
    - Play content burned on CD-R and DVD-R media

    All of this is pretty moot arguing about anyway. Toshiba wasn't offering these players because they were so much cheaper - they were used as a wedge to artificially propel themselves into a format war as a loss-leader. It was the only thing Toshiba felt could overcome the content divide that even their own bribery couldn't break. And as the Stand Alone sales data indicates, people were and are more willing to invest in BD than HD DVD. Save for the stray XBox fanboys roaming forums.

    All but maybe a dozen are opened and have been viewed. The titles that are still wrapped are a couple of things I got from Amazon last week and some catalog titles that I got from some recent BOGOs.

    Honestly, there are a lot more open than there were on December 4 when NBC News laid-off a lot of us for the remainder of 2007. (Don't worry, we're back now.) So, I can thank them for "allowing" me to catch up on my BR watching.

    And just to add to this discussion... It doesn't need it, but I just wanted to join in.
