A long time ago Video recorders were VHS, Beta and the Philips double sided formats. VHS won out in the end, but what about DVDs. Which format to buy now and not find it was the wrong choice sometime down the line? What are the DVD formats? and what is the difference?

there are a few dual format/multi format drives about so there is no need to get 'stuck' with whatever may become the 'betamax'

new version of DVD are soon to be with us (blue-ray) so id doubt if any of the current formats are here forever.

Thanks for your response and links. There is so much there that I might have to give up my daily Forum "fix" for a few days to read it all.
