About The HD-DVD Insider

The HD DVD Insider is a blog by and for HD DVD consumers and enthusiasts. In this forum,   we will  provide an insider’s perspective on the nitty gritty of VC-1 and HDiTM, and why and how they’re used to deliver  the HD DVD experience. We want to put a personal face on the people who passionately believe in HD DVD and have spent years working to bring this great HD consumer experience to market.  <?xml:namespace prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:office" /><o:p></o:p>
