    Just bought a plasma and i want to make use of the component input. My poor ol' Pioneer DV-444 doesn't support prog scan, bless it! :blush:

    I'm lOOking to replace it with something similar. It's been a superb player over the last few years, no problems what-so-ever. So i'm thinking about sticking with Pioneer and getting the 575, it's only £109 @ Empire. Does this seem like a reasonable upgrade??

    Or are there similar players (at a reasonably similar price range £100-200) that out-perform the 575 that i've overlooked??

    Thanks.

    i too have a 444 and love it i dont think the build of 575 is upto that of the 444, but it does have some good features.

    Build quality is not that important for me, it will sit in a cabinet in the wall afterall. :) You reckon the performance is upto/supercede the 444?

    I think the 444 has been very popular for many reasons, top player. Recommend anything else HD? Keen to get the best picture i can really (ie. PS Comp). Then i can see if this tv is all that.

    But like everything, i want something for nothing, not prepared to pay £500 for a new player though.
