Thank you cameron, that does help. Now that I think about it, my friends digi cable ER is more sharp then DVD quality. In these "up-sampling" DVD players, is there an option to turn it on in teh menu, or is it just automatic upsampled? If the DVD-S97 has those 4 options, then why aren't people getting it? Seems to have all the features everyone here is talking about. Seems like the best player, period.
