Brings up a couple of other much more meaty issues.  They title the article end run.

I believe they are referring to running an end around.

Another one that keeps me up at night.  People saying quote and un-quote.  When they should be saying quote and end quote.

That's all for now.

Unfortunately, I think its all smoke and mirrors and in the 'end' will mean nothing.  If it does not play $Blue Ray$ (or HD DVD), its a device that no one really needs and will quickly be made obsolete by models that do.  You cannot generate resolution from nothing - upconverting is of little value at all.

Then again, I could be wrong - seems we have an entire population that distorts SD signals on widescreens because they like to feel like they are using the whole screen.  I use native formats and the bars on the side of the screen if its not HD.  The DirecTV installer actually tried to change it and I stopped him.  SD stretched(distorted) to fill a widescreen - hate  Devil


The whole high-def DVD market went to chit the moment Sony purchased the win.  A standard was supposed to break it wide open, but Sony's pricing model has kept it stuck in the mud.  Its time people recognized Sony as the *feces* company it really is - they should have never been allowed to buy the market the way they did.  I blame the studios, who are too stupid to even understand the things they influence.  Thats more hate on the matter  Devil

I feel the same about the eejits who won't close their breaks.  As if the w3c guys just make up standards for the hell of it.   Angry

Don't even get me started on Gog and Magog.

You are.   Wink

Upconverted DVD on my A35 is vastly superior to SDVD.  It's not perfect and it doesn't rise to the level of HD-DVD but it's not bad.  Upconverting players are easily the favorites in this race. 

Agree with everything you said starting with "The whole high-def DVD market went to chit..."

I've actually lost interest for the time being.  It will be piqued again when I'm comfortable I'm safe from being a "fool me twice" gob*feces*e.   Shocked
