    To add to the question above – and this may be a dumb question – what is the benefit of HDMI on a non Hi Def DVD player surely you’ll get the same resolution as using a scart?

    Top o' the line Pioneer DVR-920H-S has HDMI out, and a 250Gb HDD, but it's hovering around the grand mark last I checked. I believe Samsung are about to release, if not already, an HDMI equiped machine. You can bet the others won't be far behind.

    As for is it better than a scart? Well, it should be as scart is analogue, so it's had to have been through a D-A converter. As HDMI is digital, then it won't. But all things being equal you won't see a vast improvement, but there will be some. It would become much more obvious the larger your display, so if you're connecting it to a projector then HDMI would be definitely preferable. On a 28" CRT you'd probably be hard pushed to tell the difference. Not that I know of any 28" CRT TVs with HDMI inputs. By and large they tend to be on HiDef ready displays.

    Regards
