It has been about 7 yrs since I bought home theater equipment so everything has changed, but I am about to buy a epson 1080P UB projector and have a 100 inch screen, so I want to get a better dvd player than my old fashioned 480 Progressive toshiba unit from 2001.
I am a bit confused by upconverting units that say they do 1080P, it takes my normal dvd and makes it look "better"?
An upconverting unit takes the 480 signal and somehow jacks it up to 1080 I or P depending on the model? (sounds too good to be true).
But will those upconverting players play an hd dvd disc?
If I decided to go with an entry level hd dvd player it would still upconvert old standard dvds correct?
Just trying to figure out what to buy here, will have a 1080P projector with the hdmi input available as well as component, just figure for now I might buy a basic upconverting unit to see if there is a difference over my standard 480 unit, then if I love that in the future I might upgrade to a full HD DVD Player that is if I even "need" to.
Guessing tho that my upconvert dvd player wouldn't play a true HD or Blue Ray disc, or everyone would have one
Thanks for any help on these questions, so much has changed in the last few yrs I feel a bit lost walking into best buy these days.
Having a baby will do that to you (shes 7, last stuff I bought was before she was born) hehe.
