Toshiba Delays Launch of HD DVD Recorder (http://www.xbitlabs.com/news/multimedia/display/20060713090258.html)

The RD-A1 HD DVD recorder from Toshiba features 1TB hard disk space, which allows users to record video, however, a noticeable drawback of the RD-A1 is that the device cannot record video maximum resolution and encoding it using MPEG 4 AVC (H.264) codec. According to the firm, the RD-A1 can record video in MPEG 2 format and then perform up-conversion from standard definition video, which means that “image quality may not match that of an original high-definition source”.

That seem have same problems with some or most Blu-ray players/recorders current on sale. I think the laser diodes are to blame for this problem.
