zdude, there are currently no high definition DVDs. the world is moving from standard definition to high definition.. by the year 2010, i believe all US broadcasts will HAVE to be in high definition. currently, if you want to store a high definition movie on a dvd, you'll have to do it on 10 dvds... obviously not practical. hd dvd and blu ray ARE the way of the future, we just don't knwo which one will be the dominant. i have a high definition TV, and i don't really like to watch DVDs because they dont' look nearly as good as high definition stuff i see from my cable network.. and i personally can't wait till this new tech. drops in price so i can grab one.
