March 18, 2007im glad this came up again. today i bought a sony bluray dvd player. i have a 60 inch sony sxrd. i bought it about 8 months ago. they told me when i bought it it had 1080p resolution, 1980x 1020 or something like that. anyways, to make a long story short. come to find out that my tv does have the resolution of a 1080p tv but doestn accept 1080p signals. WTF!!!!! so my model is kds-r60xbr1. the model that came out like a month later is kds-r60xbr2, which CAN accept a 1080p signal. what a bunch of BS! so buyer beware!! the player of course worked, but not to its full potential. so i paid 4500 bucks to circiut city and was misled. a holes! so i returned it and now im not in the hole 1300 bucks.

March 19, 2007update::
got the HD DVD player for the 360 and that stuff is unbelieveable
running it at 1080i cuz thast all my projector could handle, from 1080i to 1080p comparisons i dont see much
bougth a couple movies, V for vendetta, Friday night lights, King Kong, Apollo 13
friday night lights isnt a movie to notice much of a difference in ...but v for vendetta and kign kong were pretty amazing
i got total access from blockbuster ..unlimited rentals for $17.99 andt hey offer HD DVDs ..so basically - i rent a movie, and if i REAAAAAALY like it - i buy it at best buy or whatevaz
nonetheless the hd-dvd attatchement for 200 is well worth it
and from seeing the blu-ray on ps3...not much of a difference..i like the hd-dvd picture alot bettter...the ps3 is kinda dark, but fire and flames are pretty crazy
other than that - pick your poison but im leanin towards hd -dvd its also cheaper!
March 19, 2007hey PNALI sorry to hear about ur situation
to make it easier on you the differenc between 1080i and 1080p is minor...
but i dunno if this is still true, but circuit city works on commision so maybe thats why hte jackhole that mislead you did that
however at best buy, depending on which ones u go to...their pretty honest and dotn work on commision so you might find better service there...being a business customer also helps, they throw out 12% discoutns every time in the mail and have a 60 day return policy on HDTV etc etc
March 19, 2007thanks ecko, good to know that. funny, the same guy that sold me the tv was the same one who flew over to me to get the bluray player. life goes on. i guess there could be worse things to be mad about. it makes sense, i cant imagine the 1080p looking much better than the over the air hd signals i get. like CBS, wow it is soooo clear. thats 1080i
March 19, 2007I alont with alot of other people always ask wats the difference and i always get told thats theres a minor difference. It has to do with pixels and all that stuff. I think they best way to see how good a player is is to get you a new movie on blu ray/hd that is animated and that will make you cry or be mad cuz u spent alot of money and its the same as a reg 480. Sadly i havent found to many dvds to come out in HD format but i havent looked in a long time so i dont know. Plus my tv only does 720p when it says it will do 1080 LIES! o well when the time comes to get a new one ill make sure it does w/e the highest is ahah.

As promised a Pic of my brothers set up. You can see the center speaker built into the cabinet (right below the tv) and one of the subs on the far left, also built in with another one on the other side.
Its a 72 inch LCD sony and we were watchin some OCC on discover HD theater. It was taken with a camera phone so the quality sucks, but you get the idea.
March 28, 2007i love it!
by the way - update on those interested in HD_DVD - they lowered the prices of their Toshiba line - and they are offering 5 free hd-dvds with the purchase of their players -
blockbuster and netflix supply a large array of hd-dvds for rent...so if spending 25 - 35$ for a movie ur only gonna watch once isnt in the question...then rent it unlimited (17.99) month to see which movies impress u the most....
April 10, 2007Brandon, Do you have XBOX live? Im ready to run ya down in some madden
April 11, 2007haha mike i need to get me an ethernet cord to run to it. Let me get some practice in i havent played in a good while
w0w mike your bros set up is awsome.
April 11, 2007I actually just played last night for the first time in MONTHS! I got a 12 month live thing for 1/2 price so I got it and jumped on live. My record is 2-0 right now .
Your 360 should of came with one, mine came with like a 15 footer.
Ya, His setup is absolutely sick. The surround sound (7.2!) was incredible, i've never heard a home theater like it. That entertainment center was all custom made fit perfectly to the wall...Guess thats what you can do when money is no object
Let me know when you get hooked up!
