    hi guys & gals. call me cheap and i guess i am, but ive spent lots of money on vhs & dvd movies And im not spending a bunch of money on a new player right now. ive heard the movie makers are going to start phasing out dvd format in favor of hd dvd or bluray. also read that spiderman 3 will only come out in bluray. si i guess my question is, can i convert a bluray movie to dvd format using a dvd burner, dvd software, and anydvd. sorry for the extended post. thanks for any help

    You wouldn't even be able to read the disk without a BD player.

    even if for some reason you could...the loss of quality would most likely be HUGE....

    i don't think you need a "player", unless you talk about a ROM for your computer, but i don't reallly call them player when it's for computer

    .

    The quality loss will not be huge. It will completely BLOW OUT any DVD that was ever made!!! You are taking a HQ signal and encoding it to DVD res which means you can use maximum bitrate!!!

    Have you ever seen a DVD at 9400kbps video??? There is not a big difference between BD/HD DVD and Ultra High bitrate movies on DVD. It should even have a better picture than some early BD movies (up to a certain screen size).

    The only thing against you is that you are using a previously encoded source. HD is usually recorded in D5, so that is already slightly compressed and then they are re-encoded into HD bitrate. The quality you can expect is in between Superbit and HD/BD. You will lose some fine details, but overall picture quality will be excellent!!

    Anything that can play a Bluray disc is a Bluray disc player.

    I guarantee that a group will release SM3 as a DVD-R.

    Why buy the player? ;)

    Yeah, and that will actually hurt BD sales. They are probably trying to force people to buy a BD player with SM3... However, don't expect a SM3 rip on the net. AACS is still not cracked.

    If they don't release SM3 on DVD do you know how much $$$ they lose?? How many people will buy a $700 player just to watch SM3? They are losing at least 90% of their sales by doing this... People should just boycott all BD movies so they don't screw us over by forcing us to buy a BD player for 2 or 3 movies...

    I thought it was. Oh well, maybe we will see the first scene release of a TS from someone's living room!
