I bought a Samsung DVD player which had HD written all over the box only to learn yesterday that it does not play HD DVD discs. The " HD " that they are referring to apparently is some kind of upconversion of regular DVDs to a slightly higher resolution. Samsung only manufactures devices that play regular DVDs as well as Bluray however not HD DVD players. Spread the news. So much for Planet Earth in HD, if anyone is interested in buying the latter PM me.
