Exactly! Besides his basement home cinema he does have a very decent 50" 1080p-capable HDTV with an excellent picture IMO, he's just making excuses IMO, it's getting annoying
So giving him either a Bluray Movie or an HD-DVD movie could push him to just do something about it! Actually I do consider just telling him "father I won't give you a birthday present at this time, however I will give you a double value chrismas present", then give him both an HD-DVD and Bluray movie for chrismas

Yeah could be fun... But really I want to have an idea of which format has the best chance if I decide to go buy him an HD DVD/Bluray movie for this saturday
