Just placed my order with Movietyme for the HD-A1. Should be here next week, but I can wait :D

Agreed with the wife that if we ordered she could pick the films. She chose:

Chronicles of Riddick
Constantine
Doom
The Last Samurai
Serenity
Sleepy Hollow
Van Helsing

Has she made a good choice? :D

Hopefully future releases will be less back catalogue and more new releases. I can see e-bay being flooded with my old DVD titles soon.

Happy Days

Well i'd agree with Serenity, and maybe Chronicles of Riddick (if it's Pitch Black, not the sequel)... As for the rest... :D

Depends on your taste eh? I personally want much more back catalogue stuff. New films are bound to come out on HD-DVD, it's the old stuff that needs to be sped up!

How did you order m8? I've PM'd Craig twice on here and emailed through Movietyme's website as well but no reply yet?

Did you have to add everything to your cart on Movietyme site and then he discounts it after or what's the way to do it?

Paul.

I got a quick response from craig at [email protected]

Just order which player you want and then add the HD-DVD titles in the comments section of your order. Don't add them into your cart.

Thanks Gazza - have just emailed him - didn't want to just go ahead and order in case there were any problems.

Fingers crossed will hear back soon!

Just out of interest, are people still importing players this close to the Uk release of the 1.5G player because they;

a) - can't wait any longer
b) - don't buy Pal / R2 DVD's
c) - no HD-DVD region coding
d) - other

Cheers

can't wait any longer - Yes
Don't buy Pal / R2 DVD's - I've got hundred of R2 DVD, but have a 360 that I can play / upscale them through.
no HD-DVD region coding - eternally hopeful, if there is I might have to buy a drive for my 360.
other - It is really easy to source discs from the US and the prices are pretty reasonable.

a) Can't wait. Sky HD is a bit of a let down so far. I need to feed the beast (tv) :D
b) I do but then my multi region marantz comes in handy. Not upscaled but still great picture
c) lets hope so and they are cheap imports. Going by the DVD market R1 are still likely to come out first.
d) Pricing. Knowing how the US$->Euro->£GB works they obviously don't use the current exchange rates to price in each of the areas. I think between £500-£800 will be the starting price. But that my opinion and I have no links :D

I think its a sound investment. Sure prices will drop, they always do, but getting it now will make you smile :D

TBH the big thing for many is US compatibility - however much the UK HD DVD scene takes off the US one will always be bigger. This early in a format's life it pays to be US compatible. Now, assuming regional coding doesn't come and rear it's ugly head in the Euro models, we should be able to play US titles on a UK machine. However the European machines are still 3 months away so, if you don't mind having multiple DVD players, then why wait?

I know the DVDWorldUSA is 6 free when adding for login name in comments, what do I need to do for Movietyme?

Has anyone bought the Toshiba HD-D1? looks really nice in black. http://www.dvdworldusa.com/shopexd.asp?id=48975

Also, how much is delivery from both places??

HD D1 is very nice, but getting one is very hard, Walmart now only supply them from their website to US address's. Find a site that offers them and contact them. Shipping is included at dvdworldusa.

I'm still not sure it's worth getting one seeing as it'd go in the bedroom running a 26in Samsung LCD.

Whilst I'm at it, what's the HDD1? Is it the same as the A1 just looks nicer?

I only have a 26" Panny and sky HD looks amazing on mine so the DVD's should too. (hopefully :lease: )

Did you miss one off? Isn't the offer for 7?

I quite liked Doom, not as a film per se, but it was quite amusing.

He probably ordered from DVDWorldUSA rather than Movietyme.
