Is Blu-Ray worth it with a 720P plasma?
I have a very good Denon DVD-1920 player which upconverts my DVDs from 480P to 720P, and that I display on a 2007 Panasonic 42" professional series 720P plasma display. Granted, upconverted DVD video is still slightly soft compared to native HD from, for example, my DirecTV HD channels, but a BD disk would have to be downsampled from 1080P to 720P anyway.
Is a BD player's superior resolution going to be wasted (additional features aside) with a non-HD display like mine?
