Don't get me wrong. I'm enjoying the cheaper prices of DVD media considering I was paying $2 per 2.4X disc about 18 months ago. Toshiba said they're coming about with DVD-Video discs next year, and Sony is trying to beat them first with Blu-ray discs. Both will hold considerably more data than DVDs today. Toshiba's tech will hold less but will be compatible with today's DVD players...supposedly. I don't believe it because that would mean the DVD players would have to be capable of beaming high-definition to your TV. By 2006, high-def is supposed to be required by the FCC for the major networks, so that will be what DVD recorders will be made to record. Another scam by these guys to make you replace your DVD collection with high-def DVDs of 1970s movies.
