Rimmer, You won’t be “forced” to do anything. As others have already pointed out in other threads, HD-DVD and Blu-ray will probably take a while to gain acceptance because people just laid out money to buy movies in DVD format and DVD players. Most won’t be so willing to do so for the new format so soon. I think the make or break for either format is gonna come from the computer market as computer users are more willing (and are almost forced to due to HD and program bloat since it even takes a lot of DVD R’s to back up a HD) to utilize new storage technology. As far as authoring software, they will all, eventually support both HD and BR writers. So when you normally upgrade your software, at some point, one of those upgrades will include the capability to write HD and BR discs, whether you choose to use that capability is up to you. I really don’t think you have to worry about DVD’s going away so quickly.
