OK, so I'm wondering about getting a new DVD player. The one I currently have is about 3 years old. It's a Toshiba DVD/Tivo unit(SDH400). I don't use Tivo anymore since it was cheaper to get a DVR through Comcast. So basically it's just a DVD player now. The specs are pretty good on it. I just recently got a new receiver(Onkyo 605). The 605 upconverts. I have my current DVD player going in through component(no HDMI). When I've played DVD's, it's still saying 480p even though it's supposed to upconvert(this is a whole nother issue though, lol). So I'm wondering if there is any point in getting an upconverting DVD player to replace the one I have now. I would really like the HDMI connection on some of the new DVD players. I'm looking at the Oppo 980. Would I see enough of a difference? I'm assuming my Onkyo is upconverting the signal, but perhaps it doesn't show up as doing so through my tv. Would a new DVD player be worth it or just a waste of money? Thanks.
