I have had my Sony 30" WS HD TV now for a yr and finally going to hook a DVD player up to it. I have a Sony DVP-7000 1st generation player which has been great but not sure if it will be the best for the HDTV. I am assuming progressive scan is the way to go and I'm not ready to plunge into HD-DVD just yet. Just wondering what the favorite models are nowadays and I'm looking to spend 500 or less. My TV has HDMI in and is model # KV-30HS420 if that helps. Again if my old player is good enough and I won't notice much of a difference then please let me know so I can spend the money else where. Also what is the best way to cal my TV? Does the thx cal on some dvd's work that well or just get the essentials DVD?
