I'd like to just say that I am voting cold because it's better to buy a good non-upscaling DVD player and let your TV do an upscaling job in the best possible signal it is getting from the DVD player, than get a poor upscaling job done on a poor signal within the DVD player.

I know most of you won't understand that, but that's a different matter. :roll:

Correct. This is a dog turd dvd player. Your tv will upscale the dvd on a standard dvd player to its native resolution a lot better than this - unless your tv is equally as poor as this.

FunkiestMonkey - I do understand (maybe on a basic level) to what your saying. So do the TV's upscale automatically to the highest resolution they can/can you change this?

No, you can choose to have most scale them up in view options. Alot of TV upscalers are actually increadibly poor unless you have a decent(expensive) brand so its often better to use an upscaler....no idea on the quality of this one though.

]I agree with ]FunkiestMonkey.

A good quality non upscaling player will provide a better picture than this.
If you have a reasonable TV it should do the scaling itself.

If you need a good quality player look at these.

Everyone is right. Poor TV's do poor upscaling, but then again, poor DVD players do poor upscaling, so by buying a cheap upscalign DVD player for cheap LCD TV, there probably is not much difference. But then again, I would spend £50 more on, for example the Denon mentioned on an earlier post, to get the VERY best out of your TV. And given that Denons (as mentioned) last years, it will be a good investment for future TV upgrades.

However, if you have small bedroom TV (less than 32in) and you are watchign it from the bottom of the bed, then you may not notice difference between good DVD player and poor one.

And half-decent TV's (over £500) will upscale better than sub-£50 DVD players any day of the week.

I hope that clears things up. :-D

Voting cold, purely because i have NEVER had a good experience with techwood products. AVOID
