Onkyo latest to cause grief to HD DVD camp


Oh no! Yet another manufacturer is dropping support for HD-DVD, this time coming from home theater heartthrobs Onkyo. While not committing to total abandonment of the troubled format, it’s definitely an ominous sign of things to come.

Onkyo, though, is oddly mum about switching over to the competing Blu-ray format, neither confirming or denying that it will develop next-gen players using Sony’s technology in the future. It wouldn’t, however, make any sense to not embrace the winning disc technology as soon as possible.
