Hmmmm still going to wait. If the price continues falling like it is, I think I'll just be patient and wait a bit longer.
Good spot though!:thumbsup:

doesn't support 1080p though, so while a good price will not last longer than 3 years when 1080p screens become the norm

People bang on about 1080p but unless you have a 50inch plus screen the difference between that and 780p is marginal at best. and certainly not something you would notice unless sat 2 inches from the screen with a magnifying glass.....

Have you ever wondered what are the visual differences between common video formats?

First sample is XviD, the 1 CD version of the film; second, DVD is the vanilla 576p from store; third and fourth are HD 780p and 1080p the HD versions. Click on the image above to get the full frame version.

:prop: It's Stupid Time !!!!

Does this also upgrade or even play nomal DVD's or do I have to start all over again with my collection of disks I never actually watch !!

Not sure what 780p is, but just by virtue of not having to rescale a 1080p signal, which is generally what bluray titles are encoded in, a 1080p set should give a better picture. I'm holding out for a dual format player, I bet we've got them by christmas.

It does upscale as far as I know. And rather well too :-)

what is upscaling?
#8
This model only upscales to 1080i, not 1808p. Good price though...
#9
I'm personally holding back until one of the formats becomes the obvious winner to the format war and then will start buying discs for that format and a player. Just haven't got the heart to invest in one type only to find it all goes the other way. I know there are dual format players but I just don't want to end up with a load of movies on the wrong format. Alternatively I'll wait to the price war and buy stuff for either format when its dirt cheap.
#10
Stupid question I guess, but for HD-DVD playback which is best 720p or 1080i(my telly doesn't support 1080p)

:?
#11
I'm still holding off as the Toshiba HD-DVD players cannot be made region free for DVDs (they are for HD-DVDs) and as I have a stack of Region 1 DVDs otherwise this makes for a great upscaling DVD player if you are looking for one of those anyway...

From reviews over at AVForums this player is good at upscaling whereas its big brother the XE1 is supposedly as good as top end DVD players the likes of Denon and Arcam
#12
think you mean 720p mate

and yes I personally can tell the difference between 720p and 1080p thanks ;)

Wouldnt spend over £200 on a HD DVD player yet, wait a couple of years, as there is new stuff coming out soon, including the astonishingly good pioneer blueray player as well as very cheap HD DVD players soon

don;t move yet either way is my advice!

I can beat that I went for video 2000 the european format from philips, grundig and ITT. It was actually the best format going but a bit too cutting edge and they weren't reliable. I thought video 8 was more a camcorder format and the only home decks were basically for editing camcorder footage but I could well be wrong as its a long time ago and the memories fade.
