Re: Mitsubishi 65" and DVD HD players
Ken you can use the 1080i component input on your Mits. HD DVD looks look great from any of the current HD DVD players. If you do not have a 1080p display, go with a Toshiba A2 for around $198. The A3 may load a bit faster but the sweet deals are on the A2.
As for upconversion, that will not be possible unless you have a HDMI input. For upconversion you could always look into an Oppo player. They are pretty cheap as well.
