...I thought Profile 2.0 had one of those tricky "up-to" qualifiers regarding RAM requirements (I got lost in the conversation when it was shown that minimum ram was something like 64 kilobytes for the older profile). Then again, none of this is public per se, so I guess we'll need to see.
It's so close to being a perfect player on paper (throw in DVD-Audio and my Panny's out the door along with my A1) that I'm entirely intrigued by this thing.
I only dread that the complication of getting a true hybrid, with all the advanced features, might be easier done on paper than not.
At the least, I see it as nothing less than critical for the long term viability of the HD DVD format to see other player manufacturers from name brand equipment jump in the fray. Alas, given LG's track record with HD DVD implementation, I'm not quite counting them in this club yet.
