Went to Woodland Hills (CA) Fry's today for the Toshiba HD-DVD demo. Couldn't find any info on this on these forums, so here's a brief list of what I found out. Hardware release at the end of March, but no software titles expected at launch. $499 and $799 models. The Toshiba players have: composite out, s-video out, component out, HDMI, 5.1 analog out, L/R stereo out, coax out, optical out, ethernet. The $799 player offers more robust sound-dampening innards and a fancier motion activated illuminated remote. It also has an automated flip down panel on the front, and It's main feature is RS-422 for hi-end home theater installation where the player is remoted from another room. HDTV's with DVI only will work perfectly with an HDMI-DVI adapter (but it's expensive) and separate audio cable. Standard Def DVDs will up-res to 720P. Demo was on a very large Toshiba 1080P DLP monitor. The HD-DVD vs. SD cable broadcast split screen demo was questionable as to it's authenticity. The cable broadcast looked over compressed and soft so as to help the HD-DVD signal look even better. HD Corpse Bride and Charlie and Chocolate Factory trailers looked awesome, King Kong was soft on CGI, sharp on human actors/real props/sets. No interactivity demo was available, but it's only a menu overlay, nothing else at this time. No SACD or DVD-A compatibiliity. Ethernet is for streaming content, but nothing can be stored on the player- no hard drive or memory stick ports. Did anyone else check out this demo (it's touring the whole country, BTW)?
