Question: 
Will my DVDs show in High Definition? - High Definition (HDTV) FAQs
Answer: 
Although you may watch your DVDs on an HDTV set you will not be watching in true High Definition. The DVD format was developed prior to HDTV and does not utilize HDTV technology. DVD can use the 16:9 aspect ratio of an HDTV set and eventually the DVD-video format will be upgraded to an "HD-DVD" format. If you buy one of today's DVD players, it will not be able to play HDTV discs when they come out.
