    Anybody know if there are any HD drives for OS X? HD-DVD or BluRay?

    Any rumors on whether Leopard will support either? I can't find anything on it more recent than 2006...

    I'm using an Xbox 360 HD DVD drive under Boot Camp (XP, PowerDVD 7) on an X1600-based system. I've heard that the latest Leopard beta can mount HD DVDs and will also detect that they contain video and automatically launch DVD Player. However, DVD Player is currently unable to play them :(

    Does VLC support HD yet?

    It didn't a month ago so I assume it still doesn't. By the way, I urge anyone interested to request HD support on the Feedback page.

    Thanks for the link. Our Mac is our movie player (we don't have a TV), so we're waiting for OS X HD support before we can use all the pixels on this Cinema Display.
