And is it much of an upgrade over the hd-dvd? Worth it?

I haven't got the Blu (yet) but do have the HD DVD. As far as I can tell it should be the same except that the Blu has DTS MA audio over HD DVD's Dolby Plus.

It's one of my all time favorite films it's so damn good. Was gutted and still am when it got ignored at the oscars.

hi - i have the hd dvd and blu ray, have yet to watch the blu ray but will compare soon. i was just buying to replace my hddvd copy as dixons had it for a fiver around a year ago. since then i have been noticing a lot of differences between hd dvds that i own and 'so called' identical transfers when released on blu ray ( the thing, forbidden planet, mulholland dr all spring to mind - the biggest culprit being dnr / grain tampering ) so i have decided to keep my hd dvd version as i love the look of it ( and sound despite not being full hd )

I'm about to sell my hd-dvd player and collection in the classifieds - I vaguely remember hearing that the thing isn't an upgrade on bluray from the hd-dvd. Problem is there are certain films I really want where I know there are issues on bluray (again, the thing but also tremors) but feel I have to overlook the dnr issues etc:(

this is why i have to keep my hd dvd player. the thing supposedly sufferers from dnr and grain removal. i made the mistake of 'upgrading' certain hd dvds just to obtain dts-ma / truehd assuming the transfers were identical....silly me :suicide: most of the time the full hd audio track is not that much of an upgrade over dd+ ( no matter what the numbers say !!) but it is clear that tampering has occurred in the picture department.

why don't you keep it ?? space, money, retro bulling ??

Simply put money and house move. The money bit is because the Mrs is giving up work to look after the kids so naturally I have to cut down on certain costs and I'll literally have no spare cash so any selling I do (like the hd-dvd player, discs and my projector) will go into my own little AV pot for future purchases. Oh and the house move bit relates to the money - down sizing so need more space so less room for book cases full of films - I've culled my dvds ruthlessly, so next up is hd-dvd followed by *gulp* my laserdiscs. Yes my balls are in her handbag. No point denying it.
