Hi all i already post a message and i thanks all for the advises: you have been very usefull!!! . I was doing a bad choice before writing here,not choosing a progressive scan and with component output dvd player. I think i'll get the standalone dvd player Can u please help me on choosing between this 2 models or advise a new european one here????? a Thomson DTH-231e 149 eur or Samsung S8DVDHD935 299 eur They both support progressive scan and they both have a component output. The Samsung dvd player has a dvi output but my plasma hitachi doesn't have that input. Thanks a lot for all the reply!!
