    OR....I guess my real question is how do I watch these HD AVI/XvID on my HD TV without using my PC. I do have an LG9900 upscalled. Cou I burn the AVI to DVD and view it that way? Would it stay in HD format?:lease:

    You can't watch HD on your DVD player, 720x576 is the maximum resolution you can put in DVD-Video format.

    Nothing wrong with downloading HD trailers. I just want them on DVD in there true format. My upscaler displays 1080i, if I just put the unconverted AVI on the disc will it play it in HD content?:lesson:

    Well because I haven't really tried this, I can't say for sure. But in theory it should work.

    Normal DVD players aren't compatible with anything that isn't conform to the DVD standard. Placing an AVI file on a disc would make that disc a DATA disc and not a DVD disc....

    Thanks for that. I understand what you are saying. My DVD player will read AVI, DivX etc off a DVD Data disk. As it has a HDMI output I wondered if by putting an HD AVI file on the, would it be play it in HD?:rolleyes:

    An exception to that would be most "modern" and normal DVD players which are Divx capable . They will play ( in file mode) mpeg4 divx, xvid files burnt to a cd or DVD rom in much the same way as they play MP3s
    My Denon 1920 , Samsung HD 950 and portable Tevion certainly do.

    djmimic,
    You might find this post intersting but rather than a data disc you will probably need software like Uleads MovieFactory5 to create a "mini" HD DVD using a regular DVD disc

    Refer to your player's manual there are probably restrictions on the types of avi files that can be played, I'd be very suprised if it had the power to play an HD clip.

    Senu, Thanks for that. Might give it ago. You're spot on that my PLayer plays avi Files, it is the LG DVX-9900, its and upscaling player that outputs @ 720p and 1080i, so Im guessing if I play my HD Avi file thats is already 720p I should be viewing 720p

    Hope I explained this ok? Think I have confuesed a few people as to what I mean:thumbsup:

    Thanks to everybody who has been posting Ideas and opionions over though!!

    ROFLMAO So if you knew all along that your DVD player plays AVI files (not part of the DVD standard it has to be said), then why ask how to convert them? LOL You definitely confused me...

    Gotta say Dejong, I confused myself a little. I guess just trying to get my head around how the HD AVI file would be displayed by my upscaling DVD player.:rotfl: :oops:

    Hope this is a little clearer!?!?!?!

    djmimic,

    Sorry to dissapoint you, although you can create the suggested "mini" HD DVD discs from HD content using " normal" DVD discs , you will need an HD DVD player like the Toshibas HD-A1 to play it.
    It is not likely that a "normal" DVD player with upscaling chipset will do it: Without a "real" HD Player your best bet is to display them on an HD ready TV via a suitable PC
