What pj should I get? From reading the threads on this site, it seems that buying any pj is unwise if SD dvd playing is my goal. On the other hand, pjs were in existence long before HD and people were buying them. I realize that projecting these discs will not be quite the religious experience that blu ray or HD-DVD will be, but if you think that I still can get a satisfactory experience out of this type of home theater, I would like your thoughts.
