Hi all

Have a Sanyo HD  Xacti camera that makes pretty decent 720p movies.
Want I want to do.
Download from camera to a HDD based recorder that has an HDMI port.
Then output that in true  720p (not upscaled) to  the HDMI plug on the
back of my Toshiba 37" LCD.

In other words I'd like to store many home movies, and then play when ever
but at real 720p.

Had thought the other way was to burn the movie to a DVD, but then can't
seem to find a HDD recorder with DVD player, or separate DVD player with
HDMI port that would export the DVD content in 720p, other than upscaling
which I do not want.

Anyone aware of any unit that will do this.

Thanks

Most HDMI DVD players should give you the option via menu of what resolution you want to output via HDMI. My PS3, Pioneer 969 both do.

I am yet to see a dvd player that will play greater then 720x576 res videos off a dvd. Even the ones that do divx often seem to interlace it and then deinterlace before display so I cant see how they would ever get 720p quality on the output.

Perhaps the http://www.popcornhour.com is looking like a better option for it? Get in on the preorder now if you want one.
