Hi, I just recieved a toshiba dvd player and it died after a disc or two the day after I got it. Taking it back to the store and just thought I should get feedback before looking again. I have heard that a lot of people think the Pioneer low end dvd player is the best, but I have also heard this about the panasonic (29s?). Could you guys please recommend the best dvd player in this range? One more question. Where can you find an optical digital audio cable that would be in the range of 16-20 feet long? Thanks for any help in advance! -Ryan C.
