Correct, Samsung. DLP FTW.

Samsung FTW! I love samsung, always have exceptional luck with their products... or they just make that good of product.

Next question, what happens if you play a BD or HD-DVD on an SD tv, does the resolution get scaled down?

If you don't care about having a skinny cabinet on the tv then DLP is the best bang for the buck. I love our Mitsubishi 52 inch DLP's excellent picture quality.
The only negative is that it is a regular bulb DLP instead of LED which means the bulb needs replaced when it burns out. Already replaced it once after about a year and a half. The bulb is $200.

Edit: I just checked the prices of the bulbs and now it is down to $130.

This new one is a bit pricey. It costs about 3 grands USD, but I couldn't be more satisfied with its performance.

You actually sit there behind that keyboard ?? :amazed:

So... nobody knows what will happen if I attempt to playback an HD movie (BD or HD-DVD) on an SD tv? Will it downscale the movie?

I am asking cause the tv in our living is an SD (37" Sony WEGA... er, I think it's 37"), and my monitor only supports 1680x1050. Our ancient 5-disc DVD/surround reciever is slowing starting to not play perfectly good DVDs, and a lens cleaning and disc cleansing accomplishes nothing... so I'm wanting to get a new BD/HD-DVD/DVD/Surround Reciever for the living room, but don't really want to buy a new TV yet. I have a BD/HD-DVD drive for my computer, but my monitor doesn't support 1080p. So... I'm wondering, if I were to play an HD movie on my computer that was natively 1080p, will it down scale to whatever resoultion the monitor and TV supports?

thx.

I heard there's a risk of instantaneous time travel if you attempt that.

No really, I've had my Blu-Ray player hooked up to a SD TV it worked just fine.

Just got done watching most of the Black Knight on my computer... meh. I'm sure it'd cause my monitor doesn't support 1080p and the image was heavily downscaled, but there was a ton of aliasing, more so than with a regular DVD. While, simultaneously, it was obviously clearer with more vivid colors.

As to the sound quality, couldn't tell a difference, I was using headphones.

Will that aliasing be present when watching it on my tv in the living room? It is quite a larger screen compared to my PC monitor, would the aliasing show up more because it is a larger screen?

Well, to do so in the living room would require me purchasing a BD player to go out there, I don't know I want to do that if the images are going to look heavily aliased. Hence why I'm asking.
