Toshiba HD DVD HD-XA!

Ironically enough, (all you with ears, HEAR) the only discs my Toshiba HD DVD player could not play successfully were ............... HD DVD's!!!!

Hah!

And from scanning Blu-Ray feedback, the same seems true for Blu-Ray players. What kind of scam has been perpetrated ?? I need my money for groceries and gas, not for exploding car movies which the players can't even show exploding.

GREED, my fellow Americans. GREED.

Not at all ready for prime time.

That is true about BD players. They will not play HD DVDs.

I blame it on the high gas prices.

Dear Dr. John,

Just thought I'd take a moment to remind you, as a "fellow American," that the primary language in America is English.

Just sayin', is all...

I like how he registered just to post his rant. Someone needs to get him his medication.

I had some Memorial Day moonshine myself Dr. John - but didn't see a need to post anything. I just ended up outside grilling in my underwear - again.

No, no, no.. He's right.

All HD DVDs stopped working after Toshiba announced the end of HD DVD.
