I am purchasing a new 1080dpi plasma TV and people are telling me that I should purchase a new DVD player with HD conversion so I can connect the DVD to the new TV through a HDMI cable. My question is that they don't know that almost all the DVD's that I watch are burned onto a DVD-R from Slysoft Clone DVD. I'm not sure if these DVD's are in 1080 high definition and if they are not, what is the use of getting a new DVD player and an expensive HDMI cable. Can anyone offer suggestions. Thanks.
