Harry Potter, the bespectacled boy wizard, has his first feature film outing in this blockbuster box office hit. Newly enrolled at Hogwarts School, Harry (Daniel Radcliffe) and his chums Hermione (Emma Watson) and Ron (Rupert Grint) have a surpise encounter with a three-headed dog guarding a secret trapdoor. They then begin to suspect that something important might be hidden beneath the school, and when they investigate it leads to an encounter with the evil wizard Voldemort (Ian Hart). Will Harry be able to keep up with his studies, lead his team to victory in the school sport Quidditch, and still triumph over the dreaded Voldemort?

Sadly these won't play on Bluray or anything other than an HD player. A shame, as they're supposed to be - if anything - BETTER than BluRay.

Nonsense! Two technologies were always very similar. The only differences you will get are the codecs used for the video and differening audio formats.

I have both systems - you just cannot generalise like that. Yes, some HDVDs may have been encoded 'better' but in my experience, the vast majority of blurays will now outperform the dead HDDVD format.

[my library is around 200 HDDVDs and 350 Blurays]

Blu Ray won the HD war for a reason. Heat added though, Cant knock that price.

Didn't Bluray win because Sony had put so much money into it that they couldn't let it fail? That and they got the monopoly on the porn market? Toshiba could afford to let HD-DVD die, it wasn't the be-all and end-all if it didn't happen?
Don't shoot me down, I was told this, it's not my opinion :-)
Hot anyways, great deal.

It's all conjecture. No one can confirm this.

As for Toshiba being able to afford to let HD-DVD die, is possibly the craziest thing I've ever heard. They spent a lot of time and money on the format.

To be fair those weren't the only differences. Many with CIH set-ups were rooting for HD-DVD simply because of the subtitle placement issue that has proven a major headache with Blu-ray.

For the record, i love both formats because i cannot afford an anamorphic lens anyway. ;)

yes , a lot missing from that list.
think i have about 550 , there are a lot of japanese , german , dutch etc imports
and a lot have never made it to blu ray
