1) I can't afford an HD DVD player yet. But i want to start collecting the movies. Is it possible to compress an HD DVD movie, to a DVD-R... maybe even a DL? I would think so... since you can compress a DVD-DL to fit on a single layer DVD-R. 2) Do all HD-DVD players, playback in up to 1080p? I always thought it was the TV, or monitor that decided what resolution is displayed... I have a 1080p tv... and I'd like to take advantage of it. Thanks for reading.
