Just wondering why this forum is forum is called 'Blu-ray DVD players' when Blu Ray is a format in its own right and is not in any way based on the DVD format? Shouldn't the forum just be called 'Blu-ray players'? Makes more sense.

A couple of ideas:

Because they play DVDs too.

Or maybe because DVD has become a sort of generic term for an optical disk with video on it.

All Blu-ray players also play standard DVD discs as well. So why not?
