No. It will play regular DVD's and try to upconvert them to a better quality, but it will not play true HD-DVD's.

Can someone tell me how the picture is when playing a dvd to a hdry set. I heard it's not very good. Thanks John

Did you mean : playing a normal dvd on a HD tv? ....It will be fine. Check your dvd menu to see if it can upscale. If your using a huge tv you will notice some grain...but hopefully your not sat 2ft away!

Hd dvd

As a general rule, Blu-ray and HD do not mix, unless you have a dual format player. That said, I will assume that you are using AT Least one of these newer format players. A standard player will not play either of the higher definition format discs...accordianman

No it does not. It will upscale regular DVD's to HD resolution, but that's an electronic trick. You'll need to buy a BluRay player to watch high definition discs.

The HD-DVD standard has been abandoned by Toshiba, so the Sony players are the one's to look for.

Hi-def dvd

This is not a High Definition DVD player, it does upscale a regular DVD to HD resolution, but that's just an electronic trick.

Also, Toshiba has abandoned the HD-DVD standard (did you find the discs on sale?), you'd need to find a BluRay player (like the Playstation 3) to play high definition DVD's.

Its not designed to play HD DVDs, the model has HDMI connection in order to connect to latest output devices, viz flats panels and LCD tvs there by having a common audio and video cable. your model has a feature to upscale the normal DVD singal to match the quality output of hull HD TVs, hence the HDMI out put, do not confuse this with HD compatiability.

Go to the link below to check the full specs of your system.

though yours is a high end set, but its not HD disc compatiable.
