Hello guys,

Has any one heard of any confirmation for the specs of either HDDVD or
Bluray as of yet. So far, it's just a lot of rumors. I'd love to find
out exactly what HD resolution they will be using. Will it be 1080i or
will they go so far as to support 1080p? Manufacturers such as Samsung
is getting ready to roll out their 61" DLP-RPTV based on the xHD3 chip
(1080p native). I'm sure the other manufacturers are ready to do the
same this year but are more tight lip about it.

It's been known for a while that both will use 1080p.

I think it is safer to say that they will both support codecs - MPEG-4
AVC and Microsoft's VC-1 - which can be encoded up to 1080p. It will be
up to the studios to decide whether to do 1080p or not for a given
release. For movies or film based material, presumably they will go for
1080p24, but that remains to be seen. The early releases might be
1080i60 out of compatibility concerns, but the player should have the
flexibility to output 1080i for TVs that can't handle 1080p.

I sure hope they will output 1080p, because my Samsung 240t LCD monitor
[native 1080p] already looks *fantastic* with it [using short dvico 1080p
clips on the DVI input].

You have heard wrong. You dug up a nearly 2yr old thread to give the wrong info???

Blu-ray is 1080p and HD DVD is 720p or 1080p depending on the model.
