I, also think laserdisc should be in the fourm heading. There seems to be almost as many posts related to laserdisc rather SD DVD. (480i)
I think there will be continued interest in LD after DVD becomes a footnote in history.
The format, software and associated hardware is just so much more interesting than DVD. Look how many threads there have been in the past few years from ppl. looking to get into LD for no other reason than pure curiosity.
Will an obsolete DVD format engender this type of enthusiasm in 10 years?
I don't think so. The discs and players will go into the garbage and nobody will care. Sometimes it's just not about the technical merits of the medium.
IMHO, of course.
