Default Toshiba A3? Also some questions.

I have a few questions. I have a XB360 add on, but my 360 is in my bedroom. I wanna get a cheap HD DVD player for the Living Room, and some recommended the Toshiba A3. I saw that is does 1080i but if the TV it is being displayed on is 1080p will I still be able to watch my HD DVD's in 1080p? Also is this the best player for the price, thanks.

Yes, if you have a 1080p TV, the movie will play in 1080p.

About your other question, how much are you looking to pay?

If your 1080p HDTV properly deinterlaces the A3's 1080i signal, you will be watching 1080p for all practical purposes. That doesn't necessarily hold true if you start getting into complexities like 1080p/24, though.

If you've got a Circuit City closing nearby, you might take a look around. I don't know why, but my local store had a stack of new A3s marked way down last week. I picked up an extra for backup

$35 a week ago. I imagine they're sold out.
