I am new to this forum. I am getting ready to buy a Mits HD1000U and want to get a good upconverting DVD to hold me over until HD-DVD/Blu-Ray is settled and prices drop. Is the Oppo a good DVD player to use with this projector? Are there any other brands (Sony, Panasonic, Samsung, LG, etc.) that compare. If you suggest Oppo, which one should I get, the 970 or 971? and why? Thanks for your help.
