Sorry to Hi-jack this thread but a quick question for:
Just about to get a DVD and looking at the Samsung H950. How do you like it? Pioneer are about to bring out a new range of DVD player with HMDI outputs for about £150, so not sure whether to wait and see or buy a H950.
Also what settings are you using for the SXE?
