Buy blu-ray if money is no object. As to upconversion, BIG improvement with hdmi connection.
I have Panny Plasma that is not 1080P. I also have a Onkyo 605 receiver. I have a Panny DVD dual DVD/VHS player,(old) connected to the 605 via component cables and to the TV via HDMI.
The 605 says that it upconverts the video signal, however I see no difference when playing DVDs. Should I be seeing a difference??
Should I buy an upconverting DVD player?
Should I buy a Blu-Ray player, even though my TV is not 1080P?
