Hi, I am new to this HD/upscaler thing and am in the process of deciding on LCD/Plasma TV and also need a new DVD Recorder and Home Cinema system. I would love some advice from you. I have looked at home cinema systems but would like one with a DVD Recorder instead of just a DVD Player but also would like an upscaling DVD Recorder, I'm not too bothered about full HD as we have many standard DVDs in our collection and would just like to get the best from these on a new screen when we get it (probably 42" Panasonic Plasma or 42" Toshiba LCD at present). I have seen DVD Recorders with HDMI connections and wondered if this automatically makes them upscaling if you connect through HDMI, or can they upscale through other methods. Or would I be better off just buying a DVD Recorder with HDD and a Home cinema with an upscaling DVD Player? Sorry if I am very vague but please help me out before I lose all my hair!! Many thanks.
