Was really looking forward to upscaling current DVD library and acquiring HD DVDs. Much like the other somewhat negative review, I can not use the HDMI output. All other components work fine. Hoping to make contact with RCA so I can take machine to...

Good Picture

Can't compare HD to DVD picture

I've been sitting on the fence with these new HD formats. After owning an HDTV for 3 years, I was anxious to be able to play HD movies whenever I wanted. And now, that time has finally come.

Pristine picture quality, outstanding audio, easy setup

Slower boot-up time and bigger and heavier compared to standard DVD players

Not happy right now. HDMI does not work.

almost works

Componant video works

Product Specifications

The HDV5000 combines the superior image quality of high-definition images and multi-channel surround sound with the convenience of DVD disc playback. It supports various video formats including MPEG2, MPEG4/AVC and VC1. The unit plays back DVD/DVD-R/-RW/DVD-RAM discs and MP3 audio files from CD-R/CD-RW discs. As movie studios prepare new titles for release in the high-definition HD DVD disc format, the retail introduction of the RCA HDV5000 offers consumers an array of convenience features that enhance the movie experience. These include the ability to search the on-screen menu, make changes to set-up options or access other menu functions while the movie is playing. Scene searching is facilitated with thumbnail images on the TV screen that allow you to use the cursor to go directly to a specific scene. The viewer can even access bonus material like director's comments while the movie is playing without going back to the disc's menu. The RCA HDV5000 provides high-definition up-conversion of standard DVD discs and includes an HDMI 1.1 output for digital audio and video in one convenient connection. The HDV5000 will output copy-protected HD content through the HDMI interface in either 720p or 1080i - and standard definition DVD discs can be upconverted to 720p or 1080i to complement the performance of a high-definition television. Since the conversion occurs in the player, the signal is free of excessive digital-to-analog conversion artifacts. While improved picture performance is an outstanding advantage of the RCA HDV5000, audio quality is equally impressive, featuring Dolby Digital Plus technology for a more realistic listening experience.
