I was think I have several machines capable of DVD playback hooked to my TV. Each has a primary ability other then DVD playback.

For me
PS3
A1 HD-DVD player
Samsung upconverting player.
Panasonic DVD recorder
Xbox 1 with DVD playback kit.

So that makes 5. The samsung is going to be disconected soon as my PS3 works better. As the samsung is a an older DVI player. I've also connected a Phillips multi-region player for my pal discs

If I include machines hooked to my audio system with CD playback its much more
1.PS3
2.samsung upconverting player
3.laserdisc player
4.A1 HD-DVD player
5.CD recorder
6.xbox 1
7.5 disc CD changer

I have a home theater.

1 x Comcast HD cable box
1 x HD-A3 player (not used much but good for on the fly disks)
1 x HTPC (a purple HD player that plays off my media server. primary device)
1 x Onkyo Receiver

Been thinking about getting rid of the HD DVD player as it is redundant.

HD DVD: 45 SD DVD: 350 BR: 120
PCs: 12, Mame Arcade:1, HD HTPC: 1, WHS Server: 1, HD A3: 2, HD-A30: 1

Never thought about it. Right now, have an LG BH200 dually player, a Dreamcast (doesn't count), an X-Box, and a PS/2. Will have a wii shortly as well. But the only thing I play DVD on is the LG BH200 - no reason to play it on anything else.

I have six digital/analog disc players in my main viewing room:
1. HTPC (with DVD/CD drive)
2. Toshiba HD-XA2 HD DVD player
3. Sony Playstation 3
4. Microsoft Xbox 360
5. Samsung BD-P1000 Blu-ray player
6. Pioneer CLD-D704 Laser Disc/CD/CD-Video player

A couple of those are likely to go away, though.

I've got 4:
- Xbox
- PS3
- Toshiba E1 HD DVD
- Pioneer HDD/DVD-recorder

But, I rarely use the xbox and the pioneer, as I've also got a Popcorn Hour and a PVR. Also, even though I have 4 players capable of playing DVDs, I almost never actually use the physical discs anymore. I'm in the process of copying all my DVDs to a fileserver, so that I can access them over network with the Popcorn Hour. All of my recent purchases are already on HDD, and I expect to copy the rest of them over the summer.

Just two. Panny BD 30 for video playback and some kind of a Sony DVD player so I can keep a CD in the drive. I really need to figure out a media extender. I bought a Yammy 3800 thinking it would cure my streaming audio problems but the network port keeps failing. Once I get a media extender going on the Sony will probably be donated to some one.

Technically 3. I only ever use 2 for DVD playback though. All feeding the same FP.

1. Sony PS2 via component - haven't used this for DVD in years, fortunately
2. HTPC (TheaterTek) via DVI - primary DVD player
3. Sony PS3 via HDMI - used for BR/games, and for DVDs that the PC DVD-ROM balks at
