    Got some HD videos here that I'd like to convert to the 360 HD-DVD player.. or even the 360 itself?

    What format should they be in? Gonna be watching some Fight Club in HD tonight, yo.

    I have a bunch of HD videos on my laptop, in several formats. AVI, TS, et al.

    All I can say is I'm glad that format war is coming to an end. I'd prefer it if Sony's format got shat upon, but all I really care about is that whatever HD movies I buy, I'll be able to play them on anyone's player anywhere I happen to take them.
