I went to my local electronics retailer and the sales guy told me that they are going to discontinue DV 440. Is there any truth to this?? because i really wanted to buy this player. Which brings me to my second question. Should i get the Dv 440 or 444 or something else?? I have a Pioneer Elite SD 3670 52" projection. Bout 5 years old, so it probably can't take advantage of progressive scan or any other goodies. I'm gonna wait till it packs it in. Then get a good HDTV one. But anyways, what player should I get? I play CDR's, VCD, SVCD's .. that's about it. Thanks!
