    this tosh comes with a hdmi, now does this mean I can insert a disc with a HD (.ts file) movie on it and it will play and output correctly?

    these are the listed specs that imply that it does. Otherwise whats the purpose of a dvd player carrying the HDMI in the first place?

    and wow it's so damn cheap if it does lol

    I doubt very much that it will play HD material. HDMI sockets are there generally to allow a pure digital transfer of picture from source to display - ie dont convert it to analogue to pass via component for the plasma to have to convert it back to digital to display - each time a signal is converted you introduce the chance of error. Secondly it allows upscaled images to be sent but if you have a cheapo DVD player and an expensive plasma the scaler in the plasma will almost certainly be better
