No stock. Just know a technological improvement that serves the HT community when I see it.
Just like I advocated for DVD when the laserdisc drones said it would spell the end of quality transfers and widescreen.
Just like I advocated for 16x9 anamorphic DVD when I was almost banned from a certain forum for "making people with 4x3 TVs feel bad that their Televisions weren't state of the art". I even started a petition that got the T2 DVD "flipper disc" haulted and convinced the studio to release it from a new 16x9 transfer on the first commercial RSDL DVD.
Just like I advocated for 16x9 transfers for 1.66:1 films even when WB had much of the HT community convinced 4x3 was good enough.
Just like I advocated for a 1080p HD disc based format when Joe Kane and a band of AVS members were hoping to get stuck with a red-laser 720p format since "we'd never get 1080p".
Just like I advocated for an HD format with lossless audio and worked with another AVS member to get a petition printed in widescreen review and handed to WB who read it long before HD DVD and BD were even formalized... when everyone at AVS was saying we'd never get a lossless audio provision on HD disc.
Just like I advocated for blu-ray Disc with 50GB and 50% greater bandwidth over HD DVD despite the Microsoft-driven FUD that hijacked more than one internet discussion group for over a year.
I guess I just like rooting for the best image we can get, and seeing home-theater technology evolve to meet the challenge.
At this point I'll lay odds more of the public feels as I do and it will die on the vine.
Given the popularity of 3D ticket sales for Avatar, I'd lay odds that the public doesn't feel like you.
