Upscaling DVD Player

4
Found 10th Oct 2006
Hey there guys and gals.

I've just ordered a 26" Samsung cos my old 15" CRT isn't doing the business anymore. I like the sound of these upscaling DVD players to make my old DVDs look a bit sharper on the new TV when it arrives. I've never seen one in action though, can anyone recommend one first hand or are they not worth the money? If they are good, is there a particularly sweet deal on any at the minute? (I'd rather pay a bit more and get a decent make than any really cheap ones). Also, anyone know if the Xbox 360 can upscale stuff? I heard somewhere it can't through component cables but can through VGA but bah, i really don't know what the deal is.

Thanks!

Ben

if you have a 360, i wouldnt bother with an upscaling dvd player, the xbox 360 does a good job of it. at the moment, you can only upscale through VGA but i have read that there will be an update near xmas that will allow upscaling via component.

my advice to you would be, save ya cash for a proper hd dvd player when they come down in price and use the 360 for the time being.

if you still defo want to go for a upscaling dvd player then look no further then the Oppo DV971H dvd player, they are very good and highly regarded.

theres a big thread over at avforums you should read link: avforums.com/for…ppo

personally i have a samsung hd850 upscaling dvd player and i prefer the xbox360.

hope this helps

upscaling is waste of time,you just end up with garish picture wonder about the fuss and go back to normal.did they truly think we can get 1080 from 576?

cheers people. I will probably just take your advice and wait and see if a patch comes out for xbox 360 in near future then. If not, hopefully the HD DVD/Blu Ray players will drop to a couple of hundred quid within a year or so.
