Bit sad I know, but I happened to stumble on this months magazine called "Television and Consumer Electronics". On page 133, there is a little article that goes like this: "Sony and Nichia Corporation have developed an intergrated dual-wavelength coupler that's compatible with the red lasers used for DVD playback and the blue-violet lasers which have been developed for the next generation of optical disks, e.g. Blu-ray." And then it goes on a little about production. Anyway, maybe I'm thinking a little ahead of myself but maybe on the back of this Blu-ray will support HD-DVD? What do you think?
