LG Dual-Format Player Coming, Just Without an HD DVD Logo

While it looked for a minute there like the DVD Forum people (the dudes behind HD DVD standards) were about to piss all over LG's dual-format campfire, all they ended up being able to do was keep the HD DVD logo off the new player. Their beef was with the player's lack of support for HDi, meaning you can watch an HD DVD straight through but don't get access to the fancy menus and such.

The LG BH100 will still be released on or around February 4th for $1,200, so you can still go drop an exorbitant amount of money on a product that will only have cheaper and better versions of itself released in the coming months. Saints be praised!
