Hi, just this week I took delivery of a Samsung HD945. I have hooked it up to my Plasma with the supplied HDMI lead. I've got to be honest, I am not that impressed. I have a Pio 717 DVD player and I really can't see much of an improvement over that. I know that the 717 used to be top of the range but it hasn't even got Componant so I thought the leap forward with HDMI might prove impressive, especially after reading one thread in particular on here where someone had compared the samsung with the Pio 868. Anyone else out there feel the same about the Samsung?
