Panny S52 vs. Pio 490 vs. Sammy 850 vs. Xoro 8400 vs. LG DVX9900




I am looking for a DVD/DIVX player supporting the following in this order:
1. superb Divx5/Xvid with sub/srt (possible even Divx HD/x264 support)
2. HDMI with 720p upscaler to connect with Panny 42PV60
3. resizable subtitles with CP 1250 support
4. possible one remote for DVD player and TV set (how good is HDAVI and is it supported by S52?)
5. to look similar as PV60 (silver color / maybe small amount of black)

I am looking at:
- Panny S52 (no info regarding how well it supports Mpeg 4)
- Pio 490/696 (problem with HDMI)
- Sammy 850 (bad upscaler?)
- LG DVX9900
- Xoro 8400

Any suggestions?
