think you can get HD DVDs just crazily cheap now from places like HMV.........but yeah, in the battle of Blueray vs HD DVD....MS picked the wrong side and lost out. You should be able to find info on it in the support area, think they just plug in and play
I have one with about 30 films, well worth £4 if you can get some HD films for it. I also use it to play DVDs as I don't own a DVD player. As for ease of use it's just plug and play, connectivity wise it has a usb cable to plug into the 360 and a power cable.
I bought tmt 5 for playback via my pc using the hd dvd add on. I also bought any dvd hd so i could back up my hd dvd's to hard drive. I have 90 movies and tv box sets star trek, heroes, sopranoes, hotel babylon, torchwood, planet earth. Far cheaper for me
to back up my movies than risk my players packing in and not being able to playback my movies in the future, and facing the prospect of having to rebuy them again.
Yep i was a big loser in the format war, but i did pick up on a fair whack of them on the cheap.
I wonder how much they will be worth in 10 years time, with hd dvd add on and a offical ep 30 player.
