Hollywood has a nightmare, and it isn't a movie. This bad dream is about how a duel between two high-tech giants could force consumers to make a costly bet on the wrong technology, or slow the adoption of high-definition DVD players due out next year.

The rival technology standards could jeopardize future profits at movie studios, which count on home movie viewing for nearly half of all revenue.
