With all these upcoming new technologies people are going to go crzy over on what to pick or whats going to benefit thier entertainment. I myself is going crzy on all these upcoming new technology and its gonna cost money again for me just to obtain it. For instance since SACD/DVD-audio didn't really hit the mark we will see how blu-ray and hd dvd will achieve its goal into the new generation of dvds. Not many people have widescreen televsion nor hdtv's in thier homes. There is only going to be a majority of people actually having Blu-ray or HD Dvd. I don't think I want to pull out a grand or to, I'll rather wait till it gets cheaper. But then I don't think I can get one because My widescreen can only output 1080i and I don't even have hdmi only dvi. Is it possible for me to still get a blu-ray player n output it to a 1080i scale? Oppose to scaling to 1080p? Since it will require a hdmi input what is going to happen to components and dvi?
