Nope, no HD-DVD. Since I pretty much never watch DVD's, I won't even consider getting into that stuff until they can record in HD, have a pass-through HD tuner, a hard drive, and a built-in programming guide. And I might be waitin' forever for that one
I'm having enough problems just with the display side of things. My Elite 1140 just went on the fritz after 3 months. Everything is either heavily greenish-brown or purple-tinged, and there is "crawling moss" and blocking artifacts that were never evident on any sources before on all sources now. And no amount of adjusting helps.
What's weird is that I saw the colors change literally right before my very eyes. It's not like anything went bad between times it was on, like when we had that lightning storm last week. (I do have a decent surge protector on it.) And I haven't touched any of the color or contrast settings since the first month, when I only had to make a few small tweaks, since the colors were so great right out of the box. The thing was absolutely perfect up till this point.
And to top things off, it's a month past the 60-day, "defective exchange" point.
edit: guys came to pick it up this morning and bring it in to the shop, so we'll see how it goes.
