[QUOTE=Edison151;2015587]If I were to buy a new player it would be the oppo dv-981hd, as I have saw nothing but great reviews for it. Supposedly the chip in the a3000 series of tv’s is excellent, but I have yet to find actual posts about it in comparison to a high quality upconverting dvd player. Thank you for your input.[/QUOTE]
Buy a Toshiba HD - A3 to do your upconverting instead of the Oppo - reason = Toshiba A3 does a great job of upconverting @ about $80 and the Oppo goes for about $230-
Yes - I know that the Toshiba is discontinued - but its benefits for upconverting standard DVD’s alone - is worth far more than the selling price - especially if you have HDMI connection on your HDTV-eh!!
