    Requirements:

    Single disk
    s-video output (am switching through an AVR)
    interlaced (Non-HDTV)
    DD & DTS transport output via digital coax (am out of digital optical inputs on AVR)
    Black box (most cheap players are silver)

    Given those rather basic needs, are there any players @$250 that offer any improved picture quality (over S-video), or other niceties that would make me want it over a generic $50 Wal*Mart player? I'm also open to used player suggestions.

    Garrett,
    Take a look at the Sony DVP-NS575P.

    single disc - yes
    s-video out - yes
    interlaced - no, it's listed as progressive but you can set it up as interlaced. Most are both today.
    digital coax output - yes
    black box - yes, Sony is one of the few that make both silver and black

    You should be able to pick it up for less than $80.
