    The DVD consortium absolutely cannot make this decision, contrary to what others have said. They sent a letter to the DVD CCA (Copy Control Association) in the USA supporting 625p last November, signed by 17 Consortium members and 4 UK DVD manufacturers, including Arcam, but to no avail so far.

    However the (probably) good news is that the next meeting of the DVD CCA in a couple of weeks time has a motion on the agenda to get 625p "legalised" (i.e. included in the CSS - Content Scramble System - licence). I understand the studios do not oppose this. We shall see what happens.

    Thanks John
    Thats good news:) I remember reading in HCC a month or two ago about the possibilty of 625p in the near future but hadn't heard anything since. HCC also said that the major hardware manufacturers would probably have 625p capable equipment ready for market almost immediately once 625p was sanctioned officially. I hope this is also true.

    They are 480p and 576p, the extra lines are for Teletext and blanking info, ie; they're not actual picture info.
