No. If you're going to do anything, sell the DVX and invest in an HVX.
Though of course, you may find the A1 suits your needs better, but personally I'd go for an HVX.

First I need to ask what are you currently using your DVX for?SDC Productions Gold Coast Aust. http://sdcproductions.com.au

I may go this route.
Personally, I like everything I've seen of the XHA1. The form factor seems very DVX-inspired. And I like the fact it records to good old-fashioned, cheap, and readily available tape. And the most important factor is the footage, which looks great.
The downside of the A1 to me is simply editing HDV (which isn't too bad) and the fact it doesn't have an SD recording option. No HDMI either.
If you are considering upgrading cameras, look also at the new Sony V1U. It will be a close competitor to the Canon.

I use my dvx only as a hobby and i currently use it with a greenscreen setup. I'm only gonna make some shorts for now, maybe some commercials.. and maybe shoot some motocross and skateboard movies. I'm thinking of the hvx, but its the pricetag that makes the XH A1 so nice. And the biggest advantage is that it shoots in 16:9 vs. the 4:3 dvx.."The force is strong with this one"

It doesn't suit my needs. That's just the point I'm making. I'm really not making an issue out of your post other than to say it's a little presumptuous.

P2 cards don't suite my recording style. I could run up to 10 or 20 minutes of tape just to record a bird or animal doing something interesting. I anticipate these things out in the field because I know my subjects well but I can't tell the instant something is going to happen.
Also, and my biggest issue, is that the resolution is not up to par for me. The XLH1, XH A1 and XH G1 all record much higher res picture than the HVX and, for a lot of landscape shooting, this is what is very important to me.
