Default Re: HD DVD Player

Yeah, but to have an up-scaler for HD TV's is better than nothing.
DVD tends to look bad on a HD-TV if its displayed at default resolutions and stretched up.

Well a good upscaler is capable of cleaning the signal after upscaling, whereas a standard DVD player will simply stretch.

yea but if hes using "an" before HDTV, then he can use "an" because HDTV is pronounced eightch dee tee vee, so because the first letter in H is e, your supposed to use "an"

I find it hard to say An HDTV. Doesn't roll off the tongue as easily.
