That method is frowned upon here. Also any download that I have aver seen including MP3 files is lousy quality compared to the real thing.
On a side note I did find a whole bunch of HD DVDs at Walmart for $5 each this past week. That made me happy.

Home theater:
Onkyo 805, Yamaha YDP2006EQ, Samson Servo 600 amp
3 EV Sentry 500 monitors across the front, 4 Mission 762i's Surrounds, SVS PB13U sub, Panasonic BDT220, Harmony 1100, Nintendo WiiU
Panasonic PT-AE8000 on a 120" 2,35:1 fixed screen

Living room system:
Sherwood/Newcastle R972, Mission 765's, SVS SBS02's, A/D/S MS3u sub, Yamaha YDG2030EQ
Yamaha KX-393 Tape deck, CDC 805 CD changer, Panasonic BD60, Sony turntable PS-T20
Panasonic TC-P50ST60, HD-PVR & WDTV Live, Harmony 900

Actually, if you use torrents, and find a good torrent site, the quality is the exact same. Its not like the old limewire days where the quality was bad. With torrents, it's exact disc images, and much cheaper.

For example, The Sopranos Seasons 1-6 (amazing show if you havent seen it) in total costs around $542 in total at a store. I got exact copies of every season, every disc, for free.

It can pay off

The MPAA and the RIAA really go after those who allow their PC's to service uploads of copyrighted material via torrents -- which is part of the give and take of torrents and other P2P distribution schemes. You do not want to be caught doing so.

P2P and torrents can have their place when distributing massive amounts of data that is not copyrighted or allows distribution. Linux, gnu software, video meant for unlimited/uncontrolled distribution, etc.

More importantly, it's not ethical, and de-legitimizes the internet as a viable means of content distribution. I'm not going to sit here and pretend that I don't download copyrighted content, but I'm not going to brag about it either.

Also, the last movie that I downloaded, I did so because the DRM made it unplayable on my system. For that, I don't feel bad one bit. Down with DRM.

To be honest, the internet lol. I dont know how this site feels about downloading, but I get all my DVD's, HD DVD, BluRay, Music, etc free, and exact copies. That would be the cheapest way.

Re: Where can a person get cheap HDDVDs

Regarding the $5 HD DVDs, were they in the $5 bin or with the rest of the HD DVDs and just happened to be priced at $5?

Re: Where can a person get cheap HDDVDs

inetvideo.ca still has a lot of HDDVD titles in stock. I've bought several from them from between 6 and 12 $ each all new an sealed. Even a couple of boxed sets like Hero's and BSG seaon 1. The shipping I find a little heavy if you order few things (7-8 $ on a 20$ order) but if you order a bunch its not so bad.

At the first walmart they were in a separate bin. They had at least 20 different tittles, I grabbed 4 as I had some of the others or did not want them. The second walmart had them mixed up with the rest of the "buy 2 for $10" bin and couldn't find any that I wanted.

I bought 30 HD-DVDs from them a while back when they had free shipping. They have free shipping every once in a while.
