It shouldn't be an issue since there will eventually be cheap players that can play both formats in the future.
    Yeah, I know Samsung and LG (BH-100) have have dual format players out for a few, but most of them were so-so implementations of both formats for most than buying one of each. I've had on advance order a player that's a full implementation of both standards (Profile 1.1, full HDi, TrueHD, killer Reon upscalar, etc.) that's targetted at ~$700 (that I might still bail on).

    LG has a nice dual format internal drive for ~$300 street price (they have a matching R-HD/BD and W-BD internal, I think in the $800 range).

    Of course even at $300 you still need a pretty stout HTPC for decent decoding (plus all the supplemental PC gear) - it's more flexible than the other solutions, but more costly (and potentially more of a PITA - I kind of like: press on, open, insert disk, press play, enjoy).

    I have/had a nice HTPC, though it needs some upgrades - we switched from TW cable to DTV (must have NFL Sunday Ticket/Superfan ) and there's not a DTV-card so I lost my freebie DVR solution (to be honest the current state of programming no longer necessitates a DVR...) and get one of those drives instead (?)

    I may pull it back out, get a new MB/videocard (it's got like 500GB of storage just sitting in a closet) - has a really killer Silverstone case with a VFD, etc.

    OK, I my train of thought totally derailed...
