if you burn a 720p or 1080i movie to a dvd and play it in a progressive dvd player does it play at 720p? or 480p? in a bluray at 720p? 1080i? I am told you can't burn more than 480p to a regular dvd, but I thought I did. I was told that in order to get HD you had to burn to bluray? true or false?
mockingbird is right, if you have a sd-dvd in a sd-dvd player you'll get an sd picture. if you have a 720p quality avi file on a dvd as a data file rather than a 'dvd' and use a player capable of 720p transmission then it'll be fine
