    Hi,

    I'm going to buy a Sony KDL-V40A12U in a few weeks time and would love some advice on DVD players. My current player is showing it's age and I want a new one to go with the TV. Ideally i'd like a DVD Recorder but I notice there is a new Sony player coming out with HDMI output. Will I get much difference in quality with the new player using HDMI as opposed to a recorder using component out? It's just that I would get more use out of the recorder and we've got Blu-Ray/HD-DVD just around the corner. Any thoughts anyone? Thanks, Dene

    just get the recorder. Always best to go with something you'll actually use.

    If its got component out (progressive scan might be a bonus) then you should be fine. Your TV will scale to its resolution anyway

    Thanks mate, much appreciated. Yeah, it has progressive scan so that sounds like the one for me. Cheers, Dene
