Toshiba SD-L912A slim HD-DVD-RW writer(only 2 speed writer)
Xbox 360 add-on drive

Integra DHS-8.8
Onkyo DV-805HD

These are HD-XA2 clones. They are cosmetically nicer looking, everything else is the same.

HD-XA2 in the main living room and a HD-A30 in the game room. There's multiple backups laying around and out in the garage. I have a total of 7 players and my XA2 is the best one I've ever used. This thing is built like a tank and produces a fantastic picture.

Living room- Toshiba XA2
Bedroom - Samsung UP5000
Home Theater - LG BH200

Probably use the UP5000 the most as that is where I watch the most HD-DVDs.

After selling my Toshiba HD-A35 (backup unit), I'm only left with the Integra DHS-8.8 now!

Out of the hd-dvd game myself for some time now. I don't regret selling them. Some friends of mine sold their collection for a few "euro's" ;)
How are you guys doing with the format meanwhile?

Not too well!

=> Extra discs like crazy

I'm basically skipping Blu-Ray to jump directly to 4K UHD for new releases.

Makes perfect sense IMHO. I loved the hddvd format but owning discs that are or might be bad sooner or later made me pull the trigger on the format.
Did put much time in the format trying several players, discs etc...
Meanwhile I got picky about buying movies on any format. Love the Panasonic UHD player but I am not buying every title available that's for sure

In the living room, I have a Sony UBP-X800 player which plays CD's. DVD's, BD's and UHD discs. For the occasional HD-DVD I may want to play, I have a Toshiba HD-A3 player.

A few weeks ago, I got a Samsung BD-UP5000 in the mail which looks like a dud. I cannot get it to read DVD or BD discs. Also, the remote control has no affect on the player. I will open up the player sometime and check to see if anything inside got disconnected in shipment.

I was going to use the Samsung in my HT; but, since it is a dud(?), I think I will get another HD-A3 and use it instead. When I count the number of working HD-DVD's I have, they are an extremely low number. (My DVD's vastly outnumber my other formats.)

I have an LG GBC-H20L, which is a pc Blu-Ray player.
But, I learned somewhere that, you can turn it into into a Blu-Ray & HD-DVD combo-player by flashing it with firmawre for the GGC-H20L.
So I did. And it works :)
