90% of Americans still don't understand HDTVs
 
Wow I am really surprised, I thought everyone in USA knew all about HDTVs so this will look very bad for HD-DVD camp.

Wouldn't this be bad also for the Blu-Ray side?

I dont know about that but HD-DVD camp talked about superior image quality all the times so 90% cant see the differences.

If you read the damn cover, you'd see that it has HD Picture / HD Sound.

Did you notice that "/"?

It makes all the difference in the world.

I think for most people HD sound wouldn't make a difference. Most people use cheesy HTIB systems thinking they are badass because they make a lot of noise and have the word "sony" or "bose" written on them. This type of person won't hear the difference between traditional dvd audio and the higher detailed audio found on these discs.

Wrong and your attempt at humor fell way short. That's their bull**** marketing hyperbole. I wasn't asking for a literal definition. How is what HD DVD says about their product any different than what Blu-ray says about theirs?

Please explain. I'm dying to hear this.

You guys take the whole HDDVD vs Bluray thing way, way too seriously.

90% of Americans are total idiots when it comes to technology, btw.

Beyond high definition is "THE REAL" HD.
