Can anyone please recommend a good quality and reliable dual format player? I have tried one, but it played neither back to satisfactory quality. It seems silly to have two competing formats, I guess one will win out in the end, as VHS did?

Well, assuming you're serious (the format war was decided more than 2yrs ago) the best 2 (and only 2) fully spec'd multi-format players are the Samsung's BD-UP5000 and LG's BH 200.

I have the LG BH 200 and have nothing but praise for it, I know owners of the Samsung feel similarly.
Either one will probably suit you, your problem is more likely to be finding a really nice one at a suitable price.

I'm curious what you tried that didn't play back with satisfactory quality?

If you want a combo player, the two mentioned above are definitely the only choices. However, many will say you are better off with separate BD and HD units.
