    Hi, here is my situation: I have a Samsung txn3075whf (30 inch HD monitor widescreen) TV, a dvd-rp91, a dvd-xp50, and a dvd-rp82. I think that the Samsung 30 inch locks into full mode when viewing all 480p material. Would this be evidenced by the fact that, when viewing dvds, I cannot change the tv's aspect from "wide" (it just says "not available")? I'm wondering which dvd player I should keep; the rp-91, 82, or xp-50. Am I right in leaning toward the rp-91 because it scales non-anamorphic material and my TV probably has the full-mode-lock problem? I have at least 25 non-anamorphic dvds, but refuse to buy anymore. To sum up, here are my three questions:

    1. Does the 30 inch Samsung lock into full mode as I suspect?

    2. Which dvd player is the best one to use for this TV?

    3. If the answer to question 1 is "yes", will all these players give me proper AR and good picture when viewing non-anamorphic dvds?

    4. Extra-credit: Which of these three players is best for dvd-audio?


    Thanks everyone--any help is appreciated.

    I'm also using a Sony str-db1070 + amp if that helps any.
