I think I've seen a list once, don't remember where now.. but it doesn't matter anyway.

MPEG2 is not automatically equal crappy visuals:

http://bluray.highdefdigest.com/787/...ndrelease.html

http://bluray.highdefdigest.com/562/crank.html

etc.



Just like a VC-1 or MPEG4 codec is not equal to good video quality by default:

http://bluray.highdefdigest.com/252/...rsdracula.html

etc....




Just go for video quality (and movie quality ) not codecs when you buy. hidefdigest is a really good independent source for HDM news and reviews and there are others out there as well such as highdefdiscnews
