Here's a general question for anyone that has subscribed to the high-def format wars. I religiously use Anydvd, Clonedvd, and Nero Recode to backup my movies. I rip the entire 8.5 Gb disc with Clonedvd, minus any trailers etc. that I don't want. From there, in a second step, I send the files to Nero Recode to compress--using advanced analysis and high-quality mode for better compression. I have a rear-projection LCD tv (will only do up to 720p or 1080i) and my dvd player will up-convert to either 720p or 1080i. I usually use 720p and, in my opinion, the quality is superb. I understand that blu-ray and HD will play at 1080p with a compatible tv. For those of you that may have either HD DVD or Blu-Ray, how big of a difference do you feel exists between a true HD player vs. the cheaper way of upconversion? Is it worth the considerable monetary difference in upgrading?
