Hello everyone, I’m a newbie at posting (been around afterdawn for years), so please let me know if I crossed any lines. I read the forum rules many times. I’m in the market for one of the new High Definition players, either Blu-ray or HD DVD. My questions is for all those HD DVD Owners out there... Why did you choose HD DVD over blu-ray? Was there a deciding factor? If you have both players, please indicate if you prefer one over the other and why. This info will help many of us who can’t wait for the winning format. Thank you!
