    AVF home page says:-

    Cost of HD A1 player is £420 but just above footer of this page have further 5% off if you pay via bank transfer / pay over counter to Loyds TSB. This reduces the cost of player to £399 and AVF members get free 6 titles.

    Correct me if i'm wrong!

    The £419.99 player doesn't include the HD-DVDs. The £479.99 package DOES include the 6 HD-DVDs.

    I think that's how it works anyway.

    that's we understand from dvdworldusa website, but AVF website have a different offer as quoted above. It clearly says *any HD/Blu-ray player* and not *any HD/Blu-ray player package*

    It now says package. That was my fault in combining the two offers into one.

    Stuart's stated it should have read package not player.

    If you buy the package you normally get 5 titles, by saying you're an AV Forums member, you get 6. (So basically a free HD-DVD title).

    That's how I read it.

    Major problem with his advert for the package though!

    He says if you buy the package which is £60 more expensive than the standalon player then you will get 5 free titles up to a value of 19.99 each.

    The 'package' appears to differ in no way to a standalone player other than the 'free' HD-DVDs that costs you £60. So at best its buy a player and get 6 titles for the price of 3.

    Wonder what trading standards would say?:D

    I've emailed Craig about this. 7 free HD-DVDs with the A1? I'll be right there if that's the case..

    If it's only with the X-A1 then i'll probably go for the 6 free HD-DVD offer with the A1 instead.
