The Secrets of Home Theater results on the Pioneer Elite DV-45A show it to be an even worse video player than the DV-47Ai! Nearly bottom of the pile. How frustrating for those of us looking for ONE player for all. Maybe that's Polyanna, huh? There are good Sony DVD/SACD players and good Panasonic DVD/DVD-A players but n'er the twain shall meet. Neither parent wants to touch the other's technology. I guess for now it's "separate bedrooms."
