Default Does the A2 model have HDMI?

I know this is a n00b question but I'm a n00b.

I was thinking about getting this player for the living room because I only have the 360 add-on in my room and the TV in the livingroom has a Wii running to it's ONLY component. It has a free HDMI so I needed to know if the A2 that Wal-mart is selling at $98 has HDMI on it and I was guessing this would be the place to ask.

So... what do you say?

You can read the product description at Amazon for confirmation as well.

Thanks buddy.

Do you know if it has the 5 free HD DVDs by mail still going on with it, at all?

Sorry for the stupid questions but I don't know much about this stuff, really...

The only HD DVD player that I know that does not have HDMI is the original XBox 360. All of the current shipping models of 360 now have it though.

Thank you. Yeah, I have the launch 360. (Still works!)

Another question, if I have a 1080p TV native resolution will this player use that resolution? I've heard that 1080i players upgrade to 1080p if your TV is native, is this true?

No the player will only output 1080i regardless of your TV being 1080P.

A good quality 1080p HDTV will upgrade 1080i source to 1080p which is indistinguishable from 1080p source (you have to keep in mind that all of the information in the 1080p24 source stored on disc is present in all variants of 1080i and 1080p - so a good tv will be able to put it back together again without loss).

Really? So what am I thinking about that upgrades a 1080i signal to 1080p automatically? Or am I not even thinking straight?

EDIT: Okay so Blurry posted when I did. You're telling me a good TV (which I have) could possibly output in 1080p even though the player is 1080i?

It is the TV that does it. Read my post above.

Thanks for the info guys, you've been a big help in my decision! I think I'll be off to Wal-Mart tomorrow morning then. Don't want to miss this!
