Using Toshiba laptop HDMI out

I have just bought a Toshiba P300-16T T23702G series laptop.

It has an HDMI out port but the dvd writer/play isn't HD.

If I connect the HDMI on the laptop to the HDMI on my TV and play a normal DVD will I see any difference on the TV screen (having of course switched to HDMI) . I think I will also have to connect the audio out of the laptop to the audio in on the TV(?).

Thanks

Re: Using Toshiba laptop HDMI out

It most likely out put 720P which is HD

and should up rez standard DVD.

One thing I would like to know what Toshiba

did with all the HD-DVD notebook drives that

didn't endup in their notebooks?

I have A205-S7464 with HD-DVD player, I love it!

I know HP sold all their internal HD-DVD roms

to Geeks.com and I picked up 2 for $18 each!

Would love to get a couple notebook drives.

Thanks johnny.

I think I was misled by PC World because I've just read up on HDMI and unless I'm reading it wrong then it does both audio & video so I don't need to use the separate audio out form the Toshiba, or have I got it wrong.

I've noticed a large number of s/h Toshibas on eBay and quite a few mention that certain models have HD DVD writer/reader but I thought I read somewhere recently that Toshiba have only just started shipping laptops with that sort of drive, but then again I could be totally wrong.

Re: Using Toshiba laptop HDMI out

With the HDMI both video and audio are carried to the tv.

I did a Google on your P300-16T T23702G and I found many

are being sold in the UK and not anywhere else!

Being the dispay is 17" the HDMI might actually output

1080i check your owners manual or d/l from internet.

Saw on Ebay notebook HD-DVD drives still too high priced.
