so, I have a 1080p set...it deinterlaces fine, just fine...my question pertains to players...and disc format...
first: HD DVDs are what format 1080p, i, 720 etc...or will they play back in any player, be it 1080p or 1080i?
2nd: since my TV does deinterlace fine, just fine (South Park...look it up, lol), is it safe to get a 1080i player, or should I get the 1080p....what benefit does the 1080p have over the 1080i player besides sending the signal already progressive?
i think that's it, lol.
I am having some issues with my Pioneer upconverting DVD player, and maybe getting a refund on it...I debated getting the HD DVD player when I got the Pioneer, but decided to stick with the upconverting, but now with all the great incentives to buy, and the free DVDs, it doesn't make much sense to buy another 100 upconverter when I can get a 1080i player for only a little more, still get the benefits of upconverting my fairly large SD DVD collection, but also the benefit of renting and buying HD DVDs....!
One more question...Blockbuster is only BluRay, just heard Best Buy is giving more shelf space to BluRay as well...kinda stinks...but anywhere to rent HD DVDs? I think Netflix does, but can't confirm on their site...anyone using them?
