    A great next step for toshiba would be to pursue Viacom (blockbuster) to rent exclusive HDDVD as they have been releaseing HDDVD only for some time and in large numbers.

    Any other sugestions......

    Blockbuster wholly owned corporate stores are BluRay only now, as of August/September 2007. Semi-owned. partner, and franchise stores still carry some HDDVD and some are buying new releases in that format despite the corporate block.

    In Canada they seem to have gone dual format - my local (Montreal area) store started carrying both in equal amounts two months ago ($1 extra to rent).
