Oh boy - Casablanca and Caddyshack are both HD-DVD only, no Blew-Ray.

Seems my mind was just made up for me  Devil

Out of curiosity, what happens when one plays an HD-DVD disc in a standard DVD player?  I'm looking at getting the Planet Earth set, which comes in BluRay and HD-DVD.

nothing.
it doesnt work.  hdvds and blowrays are 'etched' with higher data density not readable by redlaser dvds... they use blue/violet lasers at a tighter wavelength.

conversely, standard dvds will play in either (backwards compatible to longer wavelength).

hd-dvds are sometimes sold for $4 more than normal as a combo disc (1 side hd-dvd, the other normal dvd) so that you can play them in old dvd players (in car, 2nd room, on plane portable, etc) as you have probably not yet acquired 3-4 hd media players .  blowray can not offer any such combo.    in time, hd-dvd/dvd combo will probably emerge as the only (hd-dvd) format offering for day/date releases on new titles to help edge the 'war' towards hd-dvd... maybe around xmas time. they'll probably be $2-$3 more than current dvd offerings (speculation)
