While many people assume that this will limit them to choosing DVDs with a MSRP of $19.95, the fact is that Columbia House has quite a few DVDs with a MSRP of $25-$30 that have a regular membership price of just $19.95-21.95.

 DVD Forum publishes digital interface specs for DVD-Audio/Video
In addition, several features have often had to be duplicated between the player and the receiver, such as Dolby and DTS decoding, and bass management – all of which potentially add to the likelihood of misadjustment in the living room.
Potentially this would mean that an external device such as a receiver would only need to derive linear PCM audio from the AandM data stream without having to handle the decoding of multiple audio formats such as AC-3, DTS and MLP.
The implementation of high-resolution digital outputs on the next generation of DVD players is likely to have a significant positive impact on the consumer audio industry, especially at the high end.

 Consumer Expectations of HD-DVD Petition
Also, HD-DVD should eliminate artifacts from the mastering process, such as excessive pre-filtering (to ease in compression) and the utilization of electronic edge-enhancement, that are common-place with standard DVD and unnecessarily mar image fidelity.
If a film-sourced image is encoded for 1080I playback (such as 480i DVDs mastered from film), the source 1080P signal should *not* be pre-filtered to minimize aliasing during 1080I playback.
If the subtitles were encoded as true text, the font size, style, color, and placement in the image area could all be modified by the user during disc playback.

The increased capacity of the proposed format is achieved by employing a blue laser, and by utilizing the two companies' new signal-processing and phase-change media recording technologies.
The DVD Forum, which Toshiba chairs, established two subgroups to study different technical approaches toward the next-generation blue laser DVD format in February this year.
One is considering an approach based on a 0.6mm disc substrate, the same method employed in current DVDs, and the other a 0.1mm cover layer, favored by proponents of the Blu-Ray disc.
