I might agree with you, if LG said much of anything beyond what they did about supporting HD DVD in the future. They made a very vague statement. At the same time, Samsung's statement made it clear there wouldn't be any further combo players coming but that they felt the current player would be the perfect transition player for all HD DVD owners. That, to me, says they're not going to abandon it outright. Not to mention, the BH200 is still exhibiting video dropouts, something that hasn't affected the Samsung player by and large.
