Speaking of BR, and not asking, but just thinking out loud, I've been wondering whether it would be more economical to buy a BR capable disc drive for the empty bay in my Mac Pro and buy Apple TV to broadcast it to my HDTV, or to buy a BR player to replace my old Sony DVD player. I haven't had time to research it yet, but it's still there on the back burner to do that research. The BR drives are backwards compatible, which is nice. <br><br>

I'm not thinking about ripping, I'm thinking about the fact that Netflix is going over to BR and that my old Sony DVD player won't play BR. I rent movies from Netflix, so I won't be able to watch the BR releases unless I either buy a new DVD player or find some other way. <br><br>
I thought that BR was backwards compatible with plain old DVDs. Is that not the case?<br><br>[color:red]</font color=red> [color:orange]</font color=orange> [color:yellow]</font color=yellow> [color:green]</font color=green> [color:blue]</font color=blue> [color:purple]</font color=purple>
