Now that I have me new TV Toshiba 51H84 I have to make a change in the dvd player department. My old dvd player Proscan PS8675 was built like a tank and stood the test of 8 years of heavy use and never once stepped down from a challenge. But, that player is old and does not feature many of todays new dvd technologies. It does not play CDR, CDRW, DVDR, DVDRW, DVD-A and SACD. It is not progressive scan and does not have any of the newest digital connections (hdmi and dvi). Nor does it have any DCDi processing. So a new player is in order. But what do I look for, what do I need? I only ever play store bought dvds. I don't burn dvd's nor cds, and my Xbox houses all my music. I don't listen to any SACDs or DVD-A so its compatibility with other types of media is generally not important. But I do have a new tv now and would like to have a more up to date video player. Right now I am borrowing a crappy JVC prog scan dvd player and it works fine, but your system is only as strong as the weakest link. And that JVC is definitely the weakest link. So when it comes down to it...what do I need. Should I be using the HDMI connection on my tv and buy a player with that connection. Does Faroudja DCDi make a huge difference in PQ and make that a primary target for my purchase. Little help here?
