Our current DVD player has skipping problems with almost every DVD I put in. I have tried viewing these DVD's on other players with no problems. Our Receiver is also about 10 years old, so it has none of the current sound schemes. Some of the input jacks no longer work, so it is impossible to connect both a DVD Player and VCR and be able to use surround sound on both machines. I am looking for a replacement receiver with a built-in CD/DVD drive for under 400 dollars. Can it be done? I don't want one bundled with little speakers. We already have some nice speakers. I am looking for a reputable brand, i.e., Sony, Pioneer, etc.
