Thanks Emma, looks like everyone is just using the info in the other thread anyway.

Paramount Pictures and DreamWorks Animation SKG announced Monday that they will offer next-generation DVDs in the HD DVD format rather than Blu-ray, a move that further complicates the race between the competing technologies.


Big names for HD-DVD to sign up.

odd that it states blades of glory and transformers will be exclusive to HD DVD?
both appear to be available on blu ray pre order?

anyway, a good price for the player, there is a new one coming out but as with everything, it will cost a lot more.

i had the hd dvd player for the xbox360, christ it was noisy. it detracted from the film i was watching.

i sold the hd dvd player and put the money towards the ps3 as im not having 2 hi def dvd formats on the go.

there are good films for both formats but the 'news' report is not correct, unless all copies of blades of glory which gets released in 2 weeks on blu ray are all going to be recalled and destroyed? and transformers is cancelled despite a release date of 3rd december?

maybe in usa?

hot and rep

It does seem very sudden. Someone on AVS has posted that there local best buy (or some other big american outlet) has a stock room full of blades of glory on blu ray :? They'll probably do an atari and bury them all :)

But doesn't play HD-DVD. Fair enough if you are just wanting to upscale for an LCD but otherwise useless.

Not sure how it'll work for anything being released within the next few weeks (and thus probably already manufactured), but Transformers is almost certainly going to be a HDDVD exclusive.

It's a worldwide exclusive on HDDVD for these two studios, i suspect that any preorders taken for Bluray versions will now be cancelled and they won't be manufactured.

Good news for the HDDVD camp, but maybe not so much for those waiting for a single format to come out as a clear winner.

First you can't see the difference between HD material and SD on a standard DVD and then you think this deal is for an upscaling dvd player.

May I direct you to this site!

no thanks id rather buy and watch HD content now then wait a year for the format war
#24
I am tempted to buy this and use my Visa card & worry later about the cost lol


Only thing is i only brought a Philips upscaler last month , would this deal be that much different for me to notice? would i be blown away?

As when i look at HD content on my virgin media box it does not look as great as i was hoping....i did ask in the Panasonic shop and he told me its cause Virgin Media are rubbish and go with Sky ....not sure what to believe.

I do have the latest Panasonic model so im am a bit disapointed as i did pay quite a bit.
banned#25
not sure what cabling you are using and tv etc but anyone who thinks upscaled looks better then HD is kidding themselves or hasnt got it set up correctly, there is a difference , having said that i have only bought dvds that benefit from being watched in HD I have no intention on replacing my collection
#26
HD content on my 80 inch screen is stunning.

Great price if you haven't already bought one.
#27
I've got one of these players, and even though my HDTV is only a 26" 1080i panel, there's still a large increase in picture quality. Children of Men never looked so good! =)
It's also a very quiet unit.
#28
What timing! I was just looking at buying an HD-DVD player and was grumbling about the price, and this morning I wake up to a good-reviewed player at a cheap price.

As for "it's no better than standard DVD", someone needs their eyes testing or TV setup revamping. I've been going through a movie trailer site downloading 720p and 1080p content and playing it on my linux box connected to my 1080p flat panel, even 720p is streets ahead of my best standard DVDs, and that's with low bitrate stuff squashed for internet downloads.

Only caveat is that the HD-E1 doesn't do 1080p, but almost all players on the market that do, apparently just play 1080i but de-interlace it before sending it to the TV as most of the playback chipsets currently don't do 1080p. Until better chipsets are widely used in players, no real difference between 1080i and 1080p as the difference is just down to which de-interlaces better, the player or the TV.

got rid quick.

got samsung hd870 now ten times better.
wont listen to those bams in what hi-fi sound and vision magazine again.:p

good deal for Toshiba HD-E1 HD-DVD though voted hot!!:thumbsup:

People hear buzzwords in currys/comet such as 'upscaling' and then for some reason thinks this compares it to HD resolution.

Very basically, your panel (LCD/Plasma) will upscale any source anyway (fill the missing pixels) and it all depends on which is better (your panels processing or your source) at doing the *guesswork* to make the picture fill the screen.

My Fujitsu plasma is very good at 'upscaling' and is marginally beaten when using my HTPC with the likes of FFDShow and post processing algorithms. Often the PQ benefit in cheap, upscaling DVD players (if any) could be due to using HDMI (digital) rather than your SCART(analogue) connection, but component (analogue) can sometimes rival this on some panels.

Using a HD source a different matter, and is not comparable.

Not to get off the subject but isnt Virgin's HD material free to watch as opposed to sky's £10 a month and i dont mean for Sky+

A full HD format is in 1080P and NOT repeat NOT in 1080i.

As the spec says folks IT IS AN UPSCALER, so before you slag me off read the spec. sheet and get your info right.

RANT OVER!!!

But you suggested buying a DVD upscaler over a HDDVD player, hardly the correct comparison, the player on offer here actually plays HDDVDs in true HD (720p, 1080i).

Upscaling standard DVD is not the same.
#34
So, with your logic, Hound, we should be able to sue anyone who releases a product that doesn't adhere to your rule about HD content! If it's not 1080p, it's not HD!

Come on man, that's rubbish and you know it. And anyway, not all HD products are made the same. I'm a videographer and just bought two Sony HD cameras that don't do 1080p, but the pictures they produce are stunning HD.

Hehe. It upscales normal DVDs, but it also plays HD-DVD at full resolution. HD-DVD is stored in 1080p, this plays in 1080i so it plays full resolution, it just interlaces the content.

It is an HD-DVD player that will *also* upscale standard DVD. It's quite clear.

From reviews I've read, the ethernet port can be used to plug it into your home network so it can download new firmware, and it's recommended that you set it up to do so as soon as you get it as there are a few updates. No idea if there's anything else you can do with it but given the price range it won't have anything particularly interesting, it'll be for updates and fault diagnosis.
