On the other hand, we have to add that the high storage capacities that BD offers are not really a must for recording high definition content. This is because of new compression technologies, such as MPEG-4 AVC, which makes it possible to produce high quality content at lower bit rates without a visible loss of quality. With this advanced codec technology, it is possible to store 8 hours of high definition video on a 30GB HD-DVD. For the moment, this is enough to store the movie and all the extras.

First off neither of them are using MPEG-4 AVC thats a real bummer.
That with the fact that your player could just stop working.
I am really going to run out there & buy the TV, the player, NOT.

If you do the math on the MPEG-4 AVC codex ratio then a DVD disc at 4 gigabytes can store 16 gig which would cover more then a HD-DVD 2 hour movie. I am pretty sure you get 4.7 gig on a DVD. So at very little added cost we could have HD-DVD.
