    Hi folks,

    I'm in the market for a new DVD OR blu ray player. Does not have to be brilliant as it's not playing part of my home cinema.

    The only stipulation for specification is it must have a settable sleep timer so that it turns itself off. Also ideally it should have HDMI connection although that isn't a must.

    Will consider second hand if its in good condition and boxed.

    Many thanks

    I think it's this stipulation which is the stumbling block for any recommendations.

    It's normally only output devices, i.e. TVs or AVRs which have this facility.

    Thank you for replying. Yeah I'm havering a serious stress trying to find a player.

    Have even gone to the stage of emailing the manufacturers but they are reluctant to reply.

    I don't mind if the player will turn itself off when the disc stops playing. Even my high end onkyo doesn't :-(

    Thank you hippo99!!!! :)

    Just thought I'd give an update so if anybody else searches this forum.

    Purchased a PS3 today and it works a treat including the sleep function. And the picture quality is awesome for what it is.

    Just a suggestion, set timer on your TV as opposed to player, you gotta turn TV off at some point??
