We'll see but it is about time for stand alone players to close the convenience gap between Blu-ray and SD DVD.
As for HD DVD players, I still use my Toshiba HD XA2 for SD DVD playback. That thing is a smoking good scaler of SD DVD's, to date the best I've seen, FWIW the Denon AVP seemed to scale equally well.
