I know that eventually I will be purchasing a combo player (or at least getting one of both flavor) and 50" 1080p panel... but in the mean time I am debating which to get first.

Sitting from a distance of 8 feet, 1080i broadcasts are obviously crystal clear but I'm wondering whether I'll get much more out of a HD player vs a standard DVD. I can be pretty picky with PQ, but I also realize there are limits to the eyes.

I notice a difference with both BD and HDDVD on my 30" Sony HD CRT.

Do you notice a difference between true HD broadcasts and DVDs? If yes, get one. If not, don't.

FYI - I have a 30" CRT, I notice a HUGE difference (Disclaimer: I sit closer than you do), I'm in the market for player(s) of both flavors, and I am about to start pestering the hell out of this board with annoying questions. Fasten your seatbelts.
