Blu-ray - HD-DVD

As some of you know I'm completely redesigning my home entertainment center for the new house

I already had the Panasonic Blu-Ray player, but since we're in this 2-format war I was missing out on HD-DVD content.

I found a frugal solution in San Diego

I bought an external USB2.0 HD-DVD player (HP HD-100) for 190$. Installed Slysoft (http://www.slysoft.com) AnyDVDHD and CloneDVD on my main PC, and am now able to play HD-DVD's on the PC (bought the Matrix trilogy to test )

Now that's not good enough, so I have the possibility to rip the HD-DVD movie to my hard disk, and then transfer it to my Mac Mini Media Center through Gigabit Ethernet (the whole house is wired for Cat5). Switch is an Cisco catalyst 2960G-24TC-L I...errr..."found" I have four 500GB external drives hooked up to the Mac Mini, and it is connected to the 50" Panasonic Full HD plasma through a DVI-HDMI connector.

All HDMI cables are Monster Cable series.

Now I have a library of HD movies I can access through my FrontRow interface.

Coolness....

The Mac Mini is actually a very good home entertainment PC...

So now I can get any movie that comes out in HD !

Cool setup.
FYI, anyone can also buy the Xbox360 HD-DVD addon, it's under $200, and use it on your WinXP/Vista machine as a hddvd player.

Not that I'd have the money for all that anyways, but even if I did I'd still be hesitant in setting all that up. With the shit that comes out every year...someone's gotta be working on an all inclusive system.

Why have 2 players when you can have just one?

No, the PC one can burn 50GB to a two layered bluray disk.
DVD is still 4.7gb.
HD-DVD is 35GB or so, but there are not any hd-dvd burners out yet I don't think.

No, it says it can burn 50gb to a bluray, it doesn't say anything about burning 50gb to a dvd.
It says the bluray disk format offers more then 5 times the standard DVD, and it can hold 25gb on a single layer bluray disc, and 50gb on a two layer disk.

The dvd structure just does not support it.
