My old Mits rear projection finally bit the dust and I replaced it yesterday with the Panny th50phd7uy. I am currently running all audio/video through my Pioneer 1014. I have to admit I am a bit overwhelmed with all the info currently out there regarding dvd players (progressive, up-converting, output resolutions) but can't imagin that my old toshiba 2109 can be the best match for this new display. Current connection from the receiver to the display is through component (hdtv cable box and dvd going into the receiver through component and vcr through rca) but I would not be opposed to going to HDMI and buying that blade for the display if it seems "worth it" even if I had to fish an extra cable through the wall (i.e, cost of blade and HDMI cable = significantly better picture quality). Question: Can someone please recommend a dvd player that will match nicely with the capabilities of this new plasma? Thanks.
