    To all BDP-S1 owners.
    Please do verify that your Sony BDP-S1 blu ray player can playback HD-DVD titles as well.
    Local branch of Sony here in Greece claims that this model can playback HD-DVD titles as well but Mother Sony never brought up out loud such a posibility.
    Please verify tha above statement and let us know.
    You might be surprised if something like this is true.
    Let us know ASP

    No, but the European model can playback the DVD side of HD Combo Disks (if you can find any)

    For a dual player you might want to wait for a month or so until the samsung BD-UP5000 or the LG BH200 are released and reviewed. They'll be the only ones available this year as things stand.

    Expected prices = ~£500ish (Currently £529 for the sammy on amazon pre order).
