Aside from expected soft picture quality & some macroblocking & artifacts to be expected when trying to fit 1080 rez in mpeg2 WITH uncompressed audio onto a 25GB disc, to use a film print copy of the 5th Element with visable dirt, smudges & hair to do the transfer on your premiere release title?????
Even though my HDTV & A/V receiver say "Sony" on them, I gotta say - typical Sony arrogrance! :devil:
I read a post from an "insider" on the AVSforum who claims Sony is experiencing a 40% failure rate on the DL 50GB BD, so don't expect them soon. Swallow a little pride Sony, and pay Uncle Bill his licensing fee and use VC1.
Me just glad my high definition DVD player says "Toshiba" and "HD DVD" on it. :up
I went to best buy today and they had a display set up. 50 first dates was playing and it looked fine, about the same as hd dvd. But it did seem that the bars on the screen were a little thicker than the ones on my hd dvd player. Maybe im just nuts.
