For some strange reason, if I take a HDDVD folder generated by DVD Movie Factory and burn the contents as a dvd data disk, the Toshiba will only play the HDDVD only if using +RW or -RW media. Using +R/-R disks are not recognized by The player.
Anyone tried using +RW/-RW on the BD player?
Further, as for the suggestion that the players have 1X readers for DVD. I doubt that is even possible. Everybody's systems starts out with the ATAPI i/f. This is likely going to stay like this for a few years until all the sw kinks are worked out, then the integration push will happen to shave a few pennies. But even then the flexibility of reading HDV files will become a must have feature, and any manufacturer will have be insane to not support this...
