Hello everyone,

I'm new to these forums (also to HDTV and bluray), and few questions. I tried searching but didn't find anything relevant to my questions.

Which is a better upconverter of regular DVDs should the Sony bluray player do the job or the panasonic plasma tv mentioned above?

Is it even worth it to have a bluray player with a 42" 720P HDTV?

When I play bluray movies and hit info button on my TV remote, on my display I get a message saying it is showing 1080P, does it mean it is simply receiving that but not actually showing it?

Thanks for your help.

Welcome to the forum. This post belongs in the S350 owners thread and it will likely be moved there by a moderator.

Use the one that looks better to you.

I think so.

Your set accepts 1080p, I take it. The player display will show what it is outputting. The TV will downconvert to its native resolution, most likely 768p in your case.

I'm going to close this thread and ask that you post any follow up questions directly in the Panny BD35 master thread. Thanks
