    I currently got the 550 package hooked up to my sony bravia, but i am fancying moving upto an upscaling player. I was thinking of either the 2930 or 1930. I started to flick around on these forums and saw people talking about the 4306 reciever. What are the differences between using a reciever and not? I thought i could just use the 1930 or 2930 straight into my bravia? Why would i fork out for a reciever?

    You can use the player straight to the display if you want. The AV Receiver can act as a hub for all your AV equipment but it's main use will be to produce the actual the sound you hear. Depending on the features, some upscale, some don't. Given the choice of the two players you've mentioned I'd go for the 2930. It's video processing is far superior to the 1930.
