Thanks for confirming what I've been seeing all along. HD DVD players rock for SD DVD upconversion!

I was like you. I bought into HD DVD before the format war ended. I took advantage of HD movies being clearanced at mom and pop video stores where the discs were not even rented and were in brand new condition for around $10/piece. And now my local Frys has them being discounted every week to a low $4.99 on sale or regular price at an average of $10. I have over 100 movies now including the box sets for Matrix and all the trilogies. It's too bad the format lost but I felt that I won by getting an excellent A35 and very inexpensive HD movies with awesome picture/sound for a third of the price of blu-ray for the older collections. I guess I'll hang onto my A35 and start building my collection with blu-ray now.
