I am thinking of buying a new DVD player but have a few concerns. I currently have a receiver with one optical and one coax input. My XBox and CD player are both optical and run through a spliter to the receiver. My DVD player uses the coax input on the receiver.

I would like to get the panny rp82, but its nowhere to be found. The rp62 is still available at a very good price, but the player only has an optical output. I can think of a couple of options. Get a toslink to coax converter ($25). Is this a bad idea? Another option would be to get a true optical switch.

Also, I have an old Toshiba TW40H80 tv. No HDTV, but planning on getting a new TV around Christmas. Should I just wait till then to think about getting a new player?

Any thoughts?

Randy.

If your current player works fine for now I would wait...since most companies will release new dvd players by christmas.

Randy I had the same problem a while ago, but i took a different solution, I bought a new receiver, best (second best) upgrade i ahve ever made my tv was the best.

Honestly it is something to consider because the connection problem will only get worse... say you get your HDTV and then want to get HD thru cable or sattilite, you will need ANOTHER input.
