I currently own a Sony DAVS888 which was purchased as a bundled Home Theatre system over 3yrs ago. I am having problems with the playing of some of my DVD's through the player even though they are original DVD's, not copies - I have read within this forum that the Sony DAVS888 has known problems playing certain types of DVDs. Therefore I am looking for some advice on a new player which contains an in built amp, so I can use it with my existing surround speakers. Also the DVD needs to have an Optical cable to allow me to have my SKY HD sound played through my existing speakers. The only DVDs with in built amp & optical cable that I can find all come as part of a home Theatre Bundle - I only need the player as I already have the speakers and sub woofer. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
