I was watching Space Cowboys tonight and I noticed that it's an mpeg2 encoding. It looks fantastic and I'm a firm believer in what mpeg2 can do, but I'm just curious as to why Warner didn't use the VC1 encode that they did for the HD-DVD? All of the other Warner titles I own are in VC1, and oddly enough , the HiDefDigest reveiw of SpaceCowboys on Blu-Ray states that it is VC1, which it cleary isn't :

"The Video: Sizing Up the Picture

'Space Cowboys' makes its Blu-ray debut only a couple weeks after it first hit HD DVD, and as with most of Warner's recent titles that have been released on both formats, I found it just about impossible to tell the difference. Utilizing the same master for both formats, this Blu-ray transfer, presented in 2.40:1 and 1080p/VC-1 video, looks mighty fine despite a couple of problem areas. "

Just curious if anyone else noticed this.
