    Well, I was getting a projector (AE100, of course) and my (now very old) pioneer 626 didn't have component outputs, so I thought "new DVD player". The bargain £80 tosh was my choice. I was sure it'd have a better picture, even without the component output.

    I wasn't right. The s-video picture of the 626 is slightly better than the 330.People are also reporting s-video as giving a better picture than interlaced component on the AE100 since it has crappy internals. Bugger.

    The tosh was nice though, because I didn't have to mess about changing the region no., and it was smaller and prettier.

    Ah well, anyone wanna buy a 330. 2 days old?

    Is it the multi-region Amazon variety, and if so how much??

    Iwas sort of kidding. I'll get some component leads, try it out, and if that's no good, then I'll sell it.

    Tried component outs using crappy phono leads, and there's a big improvement. I think I'll be keeping it after all. Now to find some half decent component cables at a sensible price.
