Not to ask a stupid question, but in order to benefit from HD-DVD, would you need a HDTV?
VHS = 220 lines of resolution
dvd = 480 lines...either interlaced or progressive
Standard def tv's display 480 lines of resolution interlaced.
HD tv's can display from 480 lines to 1080 lines.
HD-DVD is up to 1080 lines progressive.
I agree with guy above me....without an HDTV, the high def DVD player will look the exact same as a regular one because both will only be displaying 480 lines of resolution because thats all your current tv would be able to display.
