King Kong still in stock. Which numpty expired it?
#2
Not sure but unexpired now. ppl do need to move quick though. Not sure how reliable the stock indicators of amazon are. HD DVDs are getting pretty rare these days so this may be one of the last opportunities to get them new and from a reputable supplier.
#3
Shame there are no good ones in stock. And their prices on some of the others are comical.

Well, the ones listed havent been 'in stock' from any major supplier for ages. I would keep an eye on amazon over the coming weeks, they could have their hd dvd stock deals on rotation. Next week we could have a batch of other ones on the cheap.

King Kong looks incredible on HD DVD, and in my opinion is a pretty decent film, well worth it at £1.75

Jimi Hendrix Experience - Live at Monterey also going for peanuts.

He's either Trolling or means a Bluray Player. Or as you say insane!X)

Obviously not, he's not only bought a very high-end seriously high quality player (built like a battleship and with noteably high quality componentry inside) and has the ability to pick up a ton of high def films for peanuts.

The Onkyo is a rebadged Toshiba HD XE-1 and is therefore one of the best 2 HD DVD players available (the Toshiba being the other, obviously).
With it's REON upscaling chipset it is also one of the finest DVD players out there too.
Image and audio quality are 2nd to none.

I wonder what the Blu-ray fanboys have to say about the fact that there is still a significant number of HD DVD titles not out on Blu-ray?
Some may never appear on Blu-ray either given the dire sales numbers the stock catalogue Blu-ray movie titles have been getting.

Those of us who love film love film, the format it comes on is pretty irrelevant. Availability is the point and for many titles if you want high def HD DVD is your lot, that's it.

Last time I checked HD DVDs still worked in their player and still produced an excellent 1080p high definition image the equal of anything Blu-ray can do and with audio at a minimum of Dolby Digital Plus (which is a step up from ordinary DD) and many with lossless audio.

Gixxerman001, interesting post. I'm not going to pretend to know the in's and outs on the HD DVD V's Blu Ray players but I thought the HD DVD format was dead? If Im correct in this assumption then why would someone spend £600 on a machine that can only play a small amount of movies. Why would you limit yourself to scratching around in Bargin Basement Bins on and off-line when you can spend the same £600 and buy a machine that will play all future releases? I hear what your saying about a slump in Blu Ray sales but your getting sub £60 players now so maybe the market will pick up? If not is buying into a dead format the way forward? Would it not be best to pick up a cheap HD DVD Player and an expencive Blu Ray player and have the best of both worlds?

I have a HD-EP35 which I love and use daily (mostly for DVDs). But £600 for a HD DVD player is nuts. If you're willing to drop that amount of cash then get an OPPO for DVD (or the blu ray version). And if you really want to play HD DVDs then pick up something like a HD-EP30 as well on eBay.

I think he was joking ;)

£2 a movie is great, but at the end of the day, it's a select number of older movies available on a dead format. "It's not dead, I have X amount of titles on HD-DVD." Yes, the newest movie being 2 and a half years old now and no more titles being released. Sure, £2 for a movie is better than paying £20 for the same movie on blu ray, but more fool you if you pay anything close to £20 for a blu ray movie.

Onkyo? You should have gone for a reputable brand. :D

cex is the best place for hd-dvds. yes they may be used but they sell loads for £1-£4.

also import them from america it isnt that expensive. i use secondspin.com and they have offers like every 3 or 4 months they have 20% off and free world shipping. they sell hd-dvds for a few dollars and with no post to pay you can get maybe 10 for £20.

im currently on 299 hd-dvds and struggling to get the 300th as i keep being outbid on ebay. once i get trading places ill be happy.

and also its true many movies will never come out on bluray that are on hd-dvd.

also there are around 600 hd-dvd films released worldwide i think. thats more than enough for anyone im sure, so yes while newer films wont be out on it, a lot of older films are and most likely exclusively.

No it sounds like someone makes that joke(does it even class as one), every single day, it wasn't funny the first time, and it still isn't funny the 1000th time.


that's the whole point of that particular joke...

What films are actually still exclusive to HD-DVD?

I thought the HD DVD format was dead? If Im correct in this assumption then why would someone spend £600 on a machine that can only play a small amount of movies.

So what if the format's supposed to be "dead".
The discs still work and the players still play (and spare players are so cheap).

If you have HD DVDs and an HD DVD player or two then why would you care if the format's "dead" (other than continuing to build a great high definition movie collection for peanuts)?
The fact is that many titles are still only available in high definition on HD DVD.

Small number of movies?
Well 800+ titles (over 400 in English language) is not exactly small.

Would it not be best to pick up a cheap HD DVD Player and an expencive Blu Ray player and have the best of both worlds?

You or I might say so but someone who wants the very best HD DVD player (to go with whatever great Blu-ray player they have) would be looking at the Onkyo or Toshiba.
Considering that the very limited Blu-ray machines began life @ over £1000 I'd say £600 isn't beyond the realm of possibility (for a new one).

Maybe but @ £600 for a brand new Onkyo HD DVD player I wouldn't imagine they would have any difficulty selling them at that price.

You should see what some people will spend on getting the best a/v kit.
The Onkyo is, like the Toshiba HD XE-1, one of the very best HD DVD players.
If someone had a brand new unused Onkyo or Toshiba at that sort of money I doubt they would have any trouble selling them whatsoever.
Hell I'd seriously consider dropping £600 on a brand new unused one (and I'm far from rich) but it would be a machine built to last giving the best possible performance.
£600 is a fair amount of dough but it's not exactly 'top of the range' money in the a/v world.

119 are still listed here -
http://www.avsforum.com/avs-vb/showthread.php?t=1135903

It's also not just those remaining exclusives, several HD DVDs had superior audio specs than their Blu-ray counterpart.

For instance Ant Bully, Happy Feet, Lady in the Water, Phantom of the Opera, Training Day and The Wicker Man all had lossless DolbyTrueHD audio compared to the Blu-ray's 'vanilla' 640kbps lossy Dolby Digital audio track.

Others like Aeon Flux, Babel, Black Snake Moan, Coming to America, Dreamgirls, Face/Off, Failure To Launch, Flags of Our Fathers, Four Brothers, Freedom Writers, Hustle & Flow, The Italian Job, Lara Croft: Tomb Raider, The Manchurian Candidate, Mission: Impossible, Mission: Impossibe II, Mission: Impossible III all had Dolby Digital Plus audio tracks @ 1500kbps whilst their Blu-ray counterparts has 'vanilla' Dolby Digital @ 640kbps.
