    Toshiba has announced the release of their second generation of HD-DVD players: the $500 HD-A2, and the $1000 HD-XA2. Both models will replace the current HD-A1 and HD-XA1, which will stop being produced when these two models are released.

    The new models speed up load time, and feature support for Dolby TrueHD audio right out of the box. The more expensive HD-XA2 model also will support HDMI 1.3 as well as native 1080p output right out of the box.

    The HD-A2 is expected to start shipping in October, while the HD-XA2 will be released in December.

    The cheaper one does have HDMI support. Just not HDMI 1.3.

    For more info about the newer HDMI 1.3 check here: http://www.hdmi.org/press/pr/pr_20060622.asp

    The most common HDTV standards set by the ATSC are 720p, 1080i & P. 480p is generally not considered a HDTV resolution. HDMI was designed with 1080p in mind. Yes, you can get HDTV via DVI, which is the plug of early HDTV buyers.
