Why wait for 720P and 1080i DVD players???
AS i have stated before if you have an XBOX you can already play upconverted 720p and 1080i DVDs on this set, **a cheap HDPC=XBOX**, In fact lots of people are buying xboxes as a cheap way to play HD Media, And you dont have to spend any money at all disabling the security of the Xbox (Macrovision etc.) via a software mod. Its completeley legal so long as you dont Play Pirated Software although you can!
Xbox Media Center is a Free Application for the Xbox that enables the Xbox to play DVDs and is the exact same thing as Media OSes like Windows Media Center in fact it does way more and get this-- without the dongle, as well as to name a few: Divx, AVI, SVCD, VCD, XVID, WMVHD, You name the format and the XBOX will play it. You can find a picture of it here:http://xbmc.sourceforge.net/imgs/xbm...t_mayhem35.jpg
and here is all the screenshots of this bad boy:http://www.xboxmediacenter.com/info_screens.htm
And let me say this a 480p DVD looks amazing and breathtaking upconverted to 1080i:D :D
Of course you must either buy a mod chip or better yet run the (free) Pheonix Bios loader exploit aka. Bert is cheating on Ernie exploit found here:http://www.sbeyer.netfirms.com/gouki/part1.html.
I recomend doing the exploit as its just the same as if you had a Mod chip and best of all its all free and easy takes 5 minutes to do! just grab those files and upload it to the xbox with your favorite FTP app:D
Have fun and enjoy DVDs in 1080i and 720p I know I am :p
