how many DVD players do you have hooked to a single display?

post #1 of 40
Thread Starter 
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
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
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.

Just the HTPC. Nothing else.

Just one for all my setups.

In my HT, just the PS3. In my living room, just a Sony 5 Disc DVD Changer.

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.

2) Denon DVD2900, Pioneer CLD-D704, RCA HDV-5000, Samsung BDP-1000, Toshiba HD-A2

The PS3 is my only DVD player
post #14 of 40
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.

Two: Oppo 980H, and my computer (not a HTPC, just an old laptop connected through S-video).
post #21 of 40
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
