Default How will HD-DVD look on 1080i?

Is it even worth buying. I have two TV's that are 720P/1080i. Will an HD-DVD or Blu Ray even look better than a standard DVD on those TV's since my TV is only 1080i? Thanks. Please explain if you can.

HD-DVD films look amazing on my plasma and it's only done at 720p/1080i max.

Trust me, you'll notice a big difference

The Matrix Trilogy/King Kong/Mission Impossible 3/etc all blew me away.

I can't imagine how much better it is on 1080p sets as I have yet to witness.

Go for it. For a few months I was running my player on a 1080i television...night and day compared to dvd.

I'm running my HD A2 on a 65" Mitsu RPTV and it looks fantastic.

It will look great at 1080i, but how big the difference from SDVD upconverted will depend on the size of the display and the viewing distance. You certainly don't need a 1080p TV to enjoy HD.

How big is your TV and how far do you sit from it?

I have a 42" LCD 720P, to 1080I and absolutely love my HD DVDs picture quality. Big time difference. You'll love it. Trust me.
