Who bloody needs 50GB on a bloody DVD!
Some of us peeps just want to transfer our old memories, photos, 8mm, slides and VHS tapes to a DVD format, so who the hell wants it in HD format ?
It's not as if those wankers are leaving us much choice, they clearly said they will REPLACE the DVD technology and their new CRAP will not support old technology.
2 new format (and possibly a 3rd one) to compete in a war.....
Where does this leaves us ?
Also the new format will use the crappy MPEG-4 compression which I dispise with the bollocks claims - it still looks like crap compared to MPEG-2.
The LEAST those mother****ers can do is make it so that you can transfer your DVD to a BlueRay disc, WITHOUT recompression, using the same compression and it being readable in a blueray dvd player, where the chipset can support MPEG-2 legacy DVD reading... BUT NO!!! They want to use a new video compression.... So us idiots out there will have to re-encode all video and lose more quality through the process of recompression.
I will personally boycott ALL companies involved in supporting this bullshit technology..... So far on my last, NEC and SONY, I will not buy ANY of their products ! I will also boycott ANY film company that does not provide standard DVD versions of their films along with their blueray CRAP.
LiteOn is already working on their BlueRay Writer..... Can you imagine this? Double Layer is not officially out and already it's obsolete mfs!
