La guerre est finie

By then, something better might be out. By then, maybe we can stream movies. Already my internet connection from my cable company is fast enough to stream a HDTV over-the-air show. It cant be much longer until it is fast enough to stream 1080p streams. I think it will be a while before we can stream uncompressed Blu-ray titles. If you say an average Blu-ray disc is 35GB, a decent home cable connection is 10mbit, that is 35GB/ 25mb/s ideal 100% speed with no overhead 78 hours to download, too slow to stream. With a 25mbit connection it would still take 09 hours to download a 35GB title, again too slow to stream. Youd have to introduce compression which in my opinion ruins the entire point of enjoying HD content. True, our bandwidth cant support anything near streaming HD feeds but movies dont take up 35GB on the BR. Youll have to subtract all the audio tracks you dont want, all trailers, all extras. Also take into account most DVDs dont utilize all the la guerre est finie it has available either. I cant say how much one would take though since I dont have a BR drive. Too expensive. I think CorrND got it spot on. Player, recorder, and media prices are way too high for significant market penetration. And I think the market is even smaller than households with HDTV because its high resolution is only available through HDMI; so those earlier HDTVs with only component inputs arent good candidates for a purchase. Hasnt the PS3 been out selling the Xbox 360 since the beginning of the year? Given there are no profile 0 players available yet, IMHO anyone purchasing a BD player would be foolish to buy anything but the PS3 because it will be upgradable to profile As near as I can tell from the Home Theater forums, people are either buying a PS3 or waiting for new 0 profile players to show up. The other la guerre est finie is the blow out sales after Toshiba drop the ball. I myself got a HD DVD player for 70 and a few HD DVD around 10 each. Even if there is no more HD DVD I have a 70 upscale player, why I need BR? I bought one too and, thankfully, it has a fantastic upscaler. will be upgradable to profile the PS3 already has 0 support as of 20 March Hasnt the PS3 been out selling the Xbox 360 since the beginning of the year? Yeah, the PS3 has sold more per month over the 360 since the start of 08, but if you look at the sales numbers for the entire year of 07, the two month lead the PS3 had are meaningless. Saying the PS3 dominated 360 in the start of 08 is FUD when you look at all the numbers, especially December 0 I la guerre est finie this as a person who owns both a 360 and PS3, so I say this with no bias.
