    I have a 3-year old Toshiba 65H82 widescreen projection TV capable of 1080i, but it only has component video inputs. My current DVD player just quit working, so I'm looking for a replacement. I grew interested in upconverting players after researching them on this forum. However, every one I looked at is silver (Zenith DVB318, Momitsu V880 and NeuNeo HVD208). Since every other component in my system is black, I'd hate to introduce one silver component. Are there any good DVD players, in black, that can upconvert to 1080i through the COMPONENT video connection?

    If not, what do you suggest as a good quality non-upconverting DVD player to complement my TV? It must be black. It seems like the Faroudja chip would be a nice option. I'm willing to spend around $200, but less is always a plus!

    Thanks!
    Michael

    Maybe the Marantz DV9500?

    OUCH!! I said I'd spend $200, not $2,000! I'm guessing that you were pulling my leg. That beast is out of my league. Any other suggestions?
