My question is simple, but it's been frustratingly difficult to find an answer. I have a regular old 27-inch, standard-definition, 480i, 4:3 television set. Though it cannot display a high definition picture, I would like to begin purchasing HD-DVDs and Blu-ray discs now, because I know I will get an HD set in the future. So, can I watch those HD-DVDs and Blu-ray discs on my television? I understand that they will offer no significant improvement over standard DVD, but will I see a picture at all? If it makes a difference, my television has component input and a 16:9 ("squeeze") mode. As best I've been able to discern (by reading the manuals on-line), the Toshiba HD-A1 will allow me to watch HD-DVD downconverted to standard definition, but the Samsung BD-P1000 will not allow me to watch Blu-ray discs without an HD display. Is this correct? And if so, is the inability to watch Blu-ray discs in standard definition a part of the Blu-ray standard, or merely a peculiarity of the Samsung player? Thanks!
