I was looking for a replacement at the time without breaking the bank, I bought a 65" 1080i RPCRT HDTV. My 1999 DVD player only supported 480i via component. Therefore in the fall of 2005 I was searching for a up-converting DVD player and I was starting to read about Blu-Ray & HD DVD. Blu-Ray had the better specs like today but on release day Spring 2006 HD DVD had the least problems and completed specs, top it off it is a superb up-converting player which was my main reason to replace my aging DVD player. HD DVD gave a taste of HDM that got me hooked on the media.
Here we are 2 years later and BD still has profile changes and BDM lacking in features and 50GB media still showing no advantage to HDM. HD is gone but I still consider it a better format. I have no regrets with HDM I have a lot of great flicks with a HD player that does excellent DVD up-converting. I plan to continue with another HD format and if Flash turns out to be better, so be it.
HD is gone? You are aware that over 20 million americans do not know anything about Digital Television at all yet do you? That and over half of america still doesnt have anything HD related, I think its a little early to say HD is gone.
You did notice that HD DVD players have been wiped out too didnt you?

HD is hardly gone, its just getting started, It is taking some time but the reason simply being that most who dont have HD either havent heard of it, or see no reason to upgrade their equipment to HD.
HD will last longer than the few years it has I assure you of that.
