[QUOTE=pgrudzi;2219750]Hello, I am considering buying an HDTV. Unfortunately, I have many DVDs that I was told would not work well with an HDTV. Therefore, I was told to buy a DVD upconverter. However, I would still like to record HDTV. I know there are DVD upconverts/recorders which I was told would require an HD tuner. I was wondering if
- I can record HDTV onto a DVD? Then play them on the upconverter
- Would it be cheaper to buy an HD tuner and install it into the DVD recorder I have currently.
- If I buy the DVD recorder/upconverter is it OK to hook it up via a component connection
I am on a budget and I’m not a stickler for pure HD (But would like it to be clear on the TV).
Please keep in mind that I am not very tech savvy so a simple explanation would be appreciated.[/QUOTE]
Your first question what and whom told you that?? That just sounds so absurb. DVD should and will play on HDTV with no problem it is the standalone player that you should be more worried about but most DVD player will play onto a HDTV without no problem. Upconverter only make your DVD to go 1080 or something like that but upconverter has nothing to do with being able to play DVD movies it just to make it more resolution to make it look HD dvd is all. If you going to save HDtv you should invest in a DVI recorder device??? HD tuner are for air HD tv broadcast. Put this way the infor I am reading from what your saying is so confusing what I like to know again is whom is telling you this info??? I have to read again and see what your response is ok… and if need be make revision to my comments…
