Re: Infrastructure
@elizabethv interesting to know, one of my employers doing VHS to digital transfer as part- time job once a month he goes around town and buys all the VHS players he founds in the thrift stores - working or non working...  ps: remind me of one of my customers storing his Tax/Co. files on the Zip disk drive... but now you could not find any good working zip drive to read it :( as he came to me for help but my Zip driver died last year...

Re: Infrastructure
Yeah there were a lot of people who invested in the HD-DVD route and now they're left with a proudct that isn't going to last. We are currently in the process of moving and I boxed up all my old VHS tapes. As I was doing so I was wondering if my efforts were worth it. VHS Players are getting harder and harder to find and they are absurdly expensive. I'm sure it won't be too long down the road that I won't be able to find one at all unless I strike it lucky at a Goodwill. Technology almost always seems to be a costly and risky investment.

Re: Infrastructure
There is nothing wrong with it @bayte, is there?   The content providers, though, have a challenge on their hands to make things even more appealing.

Re: Infrastructure
@elizabethv yes I try to hold on to my limited edition HD-DVD's with classic Bruce Lee movies as much as possible but if my HD-DVD add on to xbox 360 dies or if XBOX 360 dies I could only look at them in the dvd case :(... in my books HD-DVD much better than Blue-Rays... as HD-DVD always Region free...  but Co. drop HD-DVD long time ago...

Re: Infrastructure
@batye - I didn't even know that. It sounds like an awesome deal, if you didn't have to have so much of the technology on your end to make it all play out. It makes sense, but that's definitely a real investment on the part of the consumer. They would have to pay out a lot of money for the devices and there would be no real guarantee the technology would be available when they wanted it.

Re: Infrastructure
@dcawrey many people would love to have this option... I do recall Amazon use to sell IMAX movies in 3D and HD format to use in PS3 with 3D Sony monitor... and Microsoft did have attachment to XBOX 360 called HD-DVD box with option to play 3D HD-DVDs on the Panasonic 3D TV...  but high prices did not get good with potential end users...
