Yeah I have it too. Pretty boring flick. Amazingly small file size and not great quality IMO. Does the toshiba HD DVD player play the WMVHD file?

I do not have a HD-DVD player. Just thought it was cool that a porn movie was the first to be out in HD-DVD.

My wife loves Tera Patrick, so she has almost every movie she is in.

Its been out long before HD DVD existed. Its not in HD DVD VC-1 format, its WMVHD (at least the bittorrent version is) and will play on the computer. And if stripped of DRM it will play on the Avel linkplayer2 etc.

Thats what I thought and its really ashame. SO I guess the Toshiba wont play mpeg2 media files burned to DVD or WMVHD movies. SIlly if you ask me since you pay a high price for that thing and it is basically a computer. :rolleyes:

High price? You're joking right?

FYI: yes, it is possible to burn short HD videos on standard DVD-Rs and play them on HD-A1. This has been done.

Is there a thread on it yet? Does +R DL work?
What about streaming Hd to it over its ethernet connection?

Yes, here is a good thread about this at AVS. It has step-by-step instructions on how to master your own HD-DVD videos using Ulead DVD Movie Factory and burn them to DVD -/+R media and play them on Toshiba HD DVD players.

The players claim to support such capability, but I haven't seen any real demonstration yet.

If I can stream my HD mpeg2 files and play Mpeg2 HD Dual layer DVD's then I want one. But no commercial WMVHD disks play? Is that a DRM issue?

I don't know. I wonder if this is something that can be supported later via a firmware upgrade.

I wonder if anyone has converted or can convert one of the divX or Atom films HD clips to a HD DVD playable disc...

I attempted some conversions from Mpeg2 to WMVHD before. Trust me it takes hours or days depending on your computer. No way do I want to attempt any reencoding of anything. Its for the birds.

That RCA model you posted info on says something about windows media files. I wonder if that means WMVHD???
