A recent power surge has damaged my 4 year old Sony 5-disc changer. It is repairable to the tune of around $80. It is a non-progressive scan model, but has served us well. The surge also took out my 10-year old conventional 26" RCA TV. Should I repair the DVD player or take that money and upgrade it to a progressive scan? I guess the TV decision comes in to play here. Since we may upgrade our TV as well, am I correct in assuming that the quality of DVD set we get depends on what TV we decide on (HDTV, etc?) Not sure if we'll go HDTV yet, but will probably at least go 16X9. Finally, are there any brands I should look at orstay away from? (I like Denon, have been looking at the 1910). Thanks for the much needed advice.
