Thumbs up Onkyo DV-HD805 HD DVD Player

http://formatwarcentral.com/index.ph...hd-dvd-player/

Onkyo has been a member of the HD DVD Promotion Group since before the formats launch last April. They are now trickling out details on their upcoming DV-HD805 HD DVD player. The unit is based on Toshiba’s flagship player the HD-XA2. We expect the player to have HDMI 1.3 as well as DTS-HD Master Audio support (no word on decoding in player).

Sounds like a cool machine but it looks like a crappy cheap design in my opinion.

I don't care what it looks like, as long as it's relatively inexpensive and has great PQ and AQ.

Does Onkyo usually have pretty good product support (i.e. firmware updates, etc.)?

I wonder if this will have SD-DVD all region? Would be a big seller if it did.

Great news. Toshiba's been great with their players but it's great to see someone else (particularly someone with a good reputation like Onkyo) entering the ring for once. Consumers will be more open to the format if they see more than one brand on the shelves.

Now only if we can get some of those Chinese players on the shelves, than Blu-Ray would be crushed.

Onkyo? Highly doubt it. Supposedly they will be adding a few more features to distinguish it from the XA2.
