Unhappy Need help I'm Clueless>

I am in need of a DVd player. Not sure to go Blue Ray or HD DVD. My TV is HD ready, and I have Direct TV. However, I cannot get the HD signal from Direct TV due to the tall trees in my backyard. QUESTION: Can I still get HD quality w/ an HD DVD or Blue Ray if I do not have the HD signal coming from satelite? Thanks for your help. I'll be back with more stupid questions.

You will get HD quality from either of the disc players (Blu-ray or HD DVD) you still will not get HD from your satellite, each source is independent of the other.

kennyt is correct. You will not receive a HD broadcast signal to watch HD programming for watching TV. However, when you rent or buy a HD DVD disc or Blu-Ray disc(depending on which player you buy) you will get full HD sound and picture for watching movies only.

You need "re-educated" bro. Go here, just enter your email every time (no need for password) and start reading the letters to the editor and tutorials. Soon you will be a pro, but first you need to understand the principles behind ATSC and HD media, i mean this in a friendly and encouraging way:

I copy all issues on CDRs. Great magazine, we'll see how it goes now
that Robbie Harley left.
