Hi. I have an early-model Toshiba 3108, and last night got fed up with the fact that I can't watch my recently-purchased Sopranos Season One collection on this player, along with another 10 DVDs in my collection. Because I live in Mexico, the firmware upgrade is a logistical nightmare that I'd rather not pursue. And with new player prices continually dropping, it sounds like a good time to upgrade to a new player. I've been out of the market for DVD playeys since this buying the 3108 in 1998, so I don't even know where to start. From scanning current discussions, it appears that there is a cant toward prog-scan players right now, but I don't think I'll go there until I build my dedicated home theater with front projection, 3-5 years down the road, so the feature is probably superfluous at this point. Could you kind folks please recommend high-quality sub-$200 DVD players for me? What are the current favorites of the forum? Thanks in advance, Fred.
