Mr. Barker of "Digital TV Designline's" comments regarding the mythical picture quality "superiority" of HD DVD over Blu-ray are unfortunate as they are quickly and easily disproved. Both formats used identical codecs, and in side-by-side comparisons on identical monitors, differences are only noticed between the two formats where engineers have intentionally undertaken to alter the master. In fact, thanks to Blu-ray's higher maximum bit-rate, picture quality is assuredly better on Blu-ray discs than on HD DVDs using the same codec from the same unaltered master. To claim otherwise is not only counterintuitive to the facts, but irresponsible posturing.
