I have been saying this for months now that VOD will put up a good fight with BluRay. Do yourselves a favor and just by an NMT media server + BD-ROM and either rent/rip your own movies or just DL x264/MKV rips. This way you give Sony/BDA the least amount of money while still being able to enjoy Full 1080p video. If you want HD-Audio, like me, you will have to spend a little more. IMHO, on about 80% of movies I see the difference between DVD upscaled to 1080p video and a pure 720p/1080p source. At least on my LCD. As far as audio is concerned most BluRay still have regular DD 5.1 but I think over the next year we will get a lot more loseless audio. If you don’t believe in the power of 1080p video + lossless audio just check out 30 Days of Night BluRay with 1080p AVC + LPCM (Made from TrueHD) and I think you will be convinced. My NMT works for me and will work for most of you too.
