    basically, im looking into getting a pvr, and was gonna go for the archos av500,the 100gb model. its priced at between £450-500. this is a lot of money and so before i make any hasty decisions i wanted to make sure it was worth it and that it wouldnt become obsolete in a year or so. just wondering about high definition. clearly, its not going to play any files in high definition because of the screen resolution etc but i was wondering if i would be able to transfer high definition files onto it and watch them in sd on the player or play the files in hd on a hdtv through the archos.for example, if i used the record function and recorded a hd dvd onto it in the future would it playback the dvd as hd on a hdtv, or for example if i transferred a hd camcorder clip onto it would it playback again on a hdtv in hd.

    any opinions on the product and help with this question would be really appreciated.

    thanks a lot guys
