This DVD player http://www.tacp.toshiba.com/dvd/prod...?model=sd-5980 Is a single disc $150 dollar DVD player by Toshiba with an HDMI output. It's being billed as "upconverting" to 1080i video. The product description says: "HDMI™ can support uncompressed digital video up to HDTV resolution. Thus the player makes use of this conduit by up-converting the standard DVD picture resolution of 720p or 1080i." My brother, who spends first and asks my advice later tells me the sales guy is selling this as an HD DVD player. The description on the website is borderline false. The sales guy giving the truth a little push into fantasy world isn't hard to believe. My brother hearing what he wanted to hear is even more believable. So, what gives? How can they get away with saying this DVD player upconverts to HD resolutions? Isn't this what most HDTVs do anyway? Just like to know any thoughts. Is this a "good" dvd player? How does it stack to something like the Pioneer DV-563A using a component only connection. I don't believe the HDMI out is going to offer any noticable upgrade in PQ, especially from a relatively cheap DVD player.
