I'll be candid. In no way, shape, or form do I want two distinct players. What a pain. Two remotes, or two units the do the same thing into one over-populated universal remote.
Less is more. I've slowly switched ALL my components over to HDMI. I run them all into a Monoprice 4 x 2 HDMI switch, then to either the Denon 3808 or to the plasma. Thus I can watch the same sources on the projector (thus the Denon) or the plasma (thus the direct). I can also use the Denon with the plasma as a result.
Streamlined. Got rid of Comcast STB, use TivoHD now. Got rid of 2nd DVD player as well. Very few cables, thanks to HDMI, and the "cupboard" is barer than it was before.
I'm happy to sit out the dual format growing pains. I was on the verge of buying one or the other, but with all the reports, and then some hands on with a friends Samsung, I will happily pass. DVDS look very good on the 50" plasma. and sound excellent.
Not many movies I want to see currently, so why jump on now?
