There is actually a big difference. DVDs offered many advances over VHS. People wanted the ability to skip chapters, not having to worry about rewinding at the end of the movie, widescreen support, higher resolutions, perfect picture pausing, all the extra stuff added, ect..
The only real advantage of the HD formats is the higher resolutions. The rest is just fluff.
