HDTV and DVD

 

The debate between 720p and 1080p HDTV continues to rage. But unless you are planning on using your HDTV with a HD DVD or Blu-ray player, I wouldn't expect to get any real benefit until HDTV program formats are availalve, and that is going to happen for a while yet - and don’t expect a decision any time soon between HD DVD and Blu-ray format.

The only reason to buy HDTV today, is if you are using your TV with a DVD player. Blu-Ray and HD DVD have a much higher resolution output that programmed television, and benefit significantly from high density screens.

In addition, Progressive-scan DVD players have their own internal processors. These are generally superior to those of most digital televisions. Using a progressive-scan DVD with an HDTV will give you the best picture you can get until HDTV programming becomes a reality.

Rather than get caught up choosing between 720p HDTV's and 1080p HDTV's – concentrate more on:

With both 720p and 1080p TVs using an HD signal source you will have to get up real close to see any difference in picture quality.

But, if you are going for a high-definition DVD player [Blu-ray or HD DVD] my advice is go for the 1080p to take full advantage of the higher resolution.

1080p is also best for screen sizes of 50 inches or more.
