I just bought a killer 50" HDTV and the progressive scan DVD output is decent, as long as it's a widescreen version. The full screen versions that I own, tend to look a little bit stretched out but tolerable. I wondered if anyone with an HD DVD player could tell me how well the output is on a NON hd dvd? I have a collection of about 250 movies. I am addicted to HD now that I have this tv and it's all I care to watch. I wouldn't mind investing in the HD DVD player but I want to learn more before I buy!
