Submission + - LG's 'Dual' HD DVD/Blu-ray Player not so Dual

An anonymous reader writes: LG did a great job rushing out the industry's first (it appears) dual-format Blu-ray/HD DVD player, giving consumers some assurance that they can simply buy any movie they want, without having to worry about compatibility issues. But in LG's rush, the company failed to include some key features in the HD DVD component of its Multi Blue player. It seems LG had all of the Blu-ray features completed, but only some of the HD DVD. The hardware can indeed play HD DVDs, but apparently LG did not have time to implement the iHD software engine that makes that player interactive.
