The higher cost of the HD-DVDs, for me, isn't worth it. But I'm not a videophile either...just a regular Joe who likes to watch movies from time to time....
I don't know if you are the average customer that purchased an inexpensive HD-A2 but I am certain what you are doing is very common. It is a very good upconverting DVD player and worth that price to a group of people for that ability alone.
