If you are talking about standalone players, then I agree. Unless Toshiba added SRT to a DVD player, I think most people will pay a little bit more and get a BD player. But I don't believe that an SRT DVD player has been announced.
Well, I really mean in both markets Toshiba is running out of time. Other CE companies are developing rivaling technologies such as 3D technology and simply cheaper LCD technology. Not only does Toshiba's SRT technology have to hit the street relatively soon, but it has to be competitively priced. I have said it a million times, but J6P is all about price and perceived value and SRT is really one of those videophile only types of features IMHO.

So, it's still just single frame "SRT" and not multiple frame" "SRT"?

Again, there is still no release date for the SRT HDTVs in the U.S. You can talk about them all you want, but until Toshibas sets a public release date it's non-existant. The same thing happened with the TL51 discs and until they announce a release date then I will assume they are not coming to the U.S. It's always good not to become discouraged from something that may/may not be released anytime soon.

Clearly a sign that the XDE campaign was successful and forced down prices of BD players, which would otherwise retail for $700 or more.

This is not the real time SRT is it? Is this not the same upconversion process as in their XDE players?

Is a real time SRT. (XDE is not SRT...as far as I know...)

I think (correct me if I'm wrong) that SRT tv´s in this U.S. models is the same as the japanese models, provided by "Meta Brain Premium" system:

Toshiba intros HDTV lines, SRT up-converting tech


Toshiba showed off a fresh line-up of its REGZA line of LCD HDTVs at the CEDIA expo, which encompasses 12 new TV sets in the company's XV545, RV535, RV525, AV502 and AV500 series of REGZA LCDs, ranging from the 22-inch 22AV500U to the 52-inch 52VX545U. The XV545 and RV535 series HDTVs are significant for their use of the company's own built-in up-converting technology Toshiba calls Super Resolution Technology, or SRT. The technique automatically enhances standard TV signals, non-HD video game sources and videos viewed from camcorders to near HD quality, the company claims. The announcement follows a similar release of a couple of sets Toshiba released at IFA in Germany recently, though it called that up-converting tech Resolution+.

The new sets will hit store shelves starting this month, with the releases wrapping up in October. Prices start at $500 for the 22-inch 22AV500U and top out with the $2,800 52-inch 52XV545U.

I think what is happening because of all the arguements on what SRT is, people may already be confused.

The SRT feature in this TV isn't the fabled mythical SRT solution that was argued heavily at the SRT master thread.

This I believe is a single frame, or less than 9, solution. I haven't read the Meta Brain articles, so maybe I'm just as confused.

I don't think these TVs do SRT in the form that you've come to know it as - 9 frames, 4-back, 1 present, 4-forward, to create a high quality image. It does another form of SRT which may produce a lower result than what the Godfathers of SRT were promising.
