It's easy for us to come up with what companies "should" do, without any knowledge of what would be involved.
As I've said before - there was only one announcement that had a reasonable chance of success, and that announcement was impossible. The only thing that could have saved HD was for the majority of studios to switch sides. No advertising, no price cut, no combo or twin-disc could do it. There was no way for HD to survive, let alone win.
HD was doomed from the start without studio support. The only thing they've ever done that might have helped was Paramount, but it really looks like Paramount saw them coming and took the money and ran.
