Default HD DVD vs. Bluray - what's the staus?

Hey everyone!

I hope this is the right forum. I want to give my dad the first season of either Lost, Prison Break or Heroes and I think I'll end up with heroes. He's a hifi tech nerd (or he has been at least) and he says he waits until there's a clear winner before he buys an HD-DVD or Bluray player. Some time ago I felt that the sentiments in here on nVnews lied with HD DVD (not least because of evil chris I guess ), but what's it like now with many several firms having changed sides or so I've heard, Blockbuster selling Bluray exclusive etc., but I can see that I can only get Heroes on HD DVD. I want to do that, but not if Bluray is gonna win the format war and my dad ends up buying a bluray player instead. So...?
