Blu-Ray

World-readable

Now you just need to get a real HD optical player. I have a Samsung BD-P1400 Blu-Ray (1080p, not 2.0 profile though) and a defunct Toshiba HD-A3 HD-DVD (1080i) that I push through my Epson projector. The projector does not have an HDMI input, so I am using a VGA component cable which produces 1080i output (the projector's max). I am using 120 inch projector screen material on my wall, and at that size the true HD optical format makes a big difference. I have upscaled SD-DVDs before, and while they look adequate, true HD is much better. Blu-Ray players have come down considerably in price (as the medium seems to be too), so I would suggest that as your next HD purchase to complete your HD home theater. I think you would enjoy the Blu-Ray experience now that you have an HDTV and you wouldn't lose anything as they upscale SD-DVDs too.
