Why not? Seems that HD DVD players are basically PCs. The G8x cards have some great video processing capabilities too. I haven't seen a stand-alone yet that can beat what my HTPC can output in HD.

You also should NEVER be controlling ANY picture and sound parameters with the playback device. Your display and audio processor should do that.
Being able to control codecs, filters, etc. and the added flexibility that provides is an advantage, imo. ymmv.
