A revision of Likvid's idea for a poll of AVS HD player owners.

Placed in both the HD DVD and Blu-ray hardware forums.

If you own both you can post in the poll for the other format

Kosty why does this poll have an 'HD-DVD' option, but the equivelent poll in the HD-DVD forum does not? Since I can tell it was a space issue there, don't you think it would have been less contentious to leave it off here as well?

And in the spirit of polling guys here's also a poll in the HDTV Media section that tries to capture a snapshot of ownership in both camps:

You should have made this a public poll, so we can see who votes.

Both polls (mine and Kosty's) are in fact public - you just need to click on one of the vote numbers to see who voted.

Because I made the up the HD DVD one first and I didn't think of it until I was trying to fill up the 10 options in the Blu-ray poll. No malice was intended. I promise I will go back when these polls close and since its public, I will manually post what Blu-ray owners also own an HD DVD player.

I also made a mistake in the HD DVD poll, I typed HD XA1 twice instead of adding HD XA2. I added a note to that effect.

Yep it would, but I can't revise this and a lot of guys have already posted so I let it ride. If people vote in both places, if the option is on one of the polls we can have a correct data set. I'll pace a comment on the HD DVD poll side.

I am waiting for a good combo BR/HD DVD player to arrive. There is enough talk/speculation about them for me to sit on my hands for now.

@Kosty: No worries, I wasn't trying to come down on you. I agree that it's better to have it than not, it just leads to that sort of 'static' in the air is all.

@Scott Tucker and Mustang: Then... why are you here?

@Dave Blu-ray: Dave Blu-ray, what the hell? Voting for every single player is just idiotic. We're trying to get an *honest* sampling here.

It's because pre-orders count for the purposes of the poll.

I have a PS3 60gb and I think it's a great blu-ray player. Biggest gripe right now is the lack of remote.

If your HTPC has a Blu-ray drive, you could sell it to Dave-Blu-Ray so he can say he owns one of every possible device on the market.
