    As for audio with old releases I would "assume" that the audio wasn't recorded with the quality that they could make a true hd audio transfer in the first place. The old phrase crap in crap out works here. Personally I only buy new movies that would be visually worth it in HD-DVD. That would be different if I was one of those with a $5000 plus
    projector. I've seen setups in the avs forums that are $28000 just for the properly calibrated crt projector, not to mention the rest of the home theater setup. In that case I would buy every movie I could get in HD.
