I'm sure he rolled his eyes and was reminded why he hates working there after you left haha.
As far as Blu-ray vs HD-DVD quality goes...I read a review of a movie that is offered on both HD-DVD and Blu-ray formats by Warner Bros and the reviewer actually preferred the quality of the HD-DVD better. I guess there is some scaling issue with Blu-ray right now that screws up part of the image during certain action sequences.
I was by a CC last night so I stopped in. Spent about 15min watching, they had a looped demo DVD playing, so after 15min it was back to the start.
OK it looked GOOD as GOOD as the best PBS I have watched.
Since this was a "special" demo the it looked great, of course. I would rather watch a full movie than just few "special" clips.
Finaly one of the CC guys came over and asked if he could help me. I replied "Yes, when the Blue Ray players are $400." He said, that won't be for a while. He asked me what I though of the picture? I said, It looks as good a Channel 11's(local PBS) best HD.
He said something about the HDTV would upscalle Channel 11's 1080i to 1080p. I did correct him,, the correct term is deinterlace and upsacling would be 720p to 1080p. OK well, I just couldn't resist.
Aren't thoes of you that work for BBY and CC glad you don't have me for a customer!!! John
