Question Best DVD player with Upscaling


I have Samsung series 5 46" LCD, I already have a philips dvd 727k player hooked to LCD via component output. Recently, my cousin hooked his PS3 via HDMI and we set the upscaling to "full". We had copied the same clip from the documentary "Planet Earth" and put movie on still.

I changed the source of the LCD from HDMI to component and back, we found the image quality is much more sharper giving details in the background and contrast also improved via HDMI with upscaling.

Iam now looking for a decent DVD player that does good upscaling. I found many players in this forum like Philips DVP5996, Samsung DVD-1080PK, Pioneer DV-610AV, Sony (don't remember the model no.) etc

I would like to give your suggestions for choosing a decent player since my budget is around 5k.

Iam also planning to buy the Popcorn Hour A-110 since I have HD movies in my pc. This is the reason for my less budget towards DVD player.

Kindly advise...

You have posted somewhere else that you are looking for cables to connect. So do you now know how to connect? If not, can you list the output sockets on your PC?

Cheers

If your display card has a DVI out, then you can use a DVI cable o connect your PC to your LCD TV.

Hi Dushie!, thanks for the thread, but before posting this I had gone through this and found the emphasis was more on the USB features and its playback capability. Iam no way interested in USB and Divx playback. Iam keen on the upscaling quality through HDMI, even though the DVD player possess USB/Divx features (not much concern).

So kindly, name some players that gives importance to upscaling...which around 5-6k budget.

Re: Best DVD player with Upscaling

I am using philips up scaling dvd player with usb+ karaoke and frankly I couldn't see very big difference by turning up upscaling. But connecting through HDMI makes a visible difference .

If you are planning to use dvd player + popcourn , why don't you think about buying a HTPC ? In long run it might provide usefull as any dvd player in india will not play HD divx

Yes, I will be using through HDMI and as already mentioned in my earlier post, I found that upscaling does gives some improvement over the conventional quality (as found in my cousin's PS3). The plan for buying upscaling DVD is to play the present collection of my DVDs with improved quality and the future movies that Iam downloading are all in MKV format (1080p) which Popcorn Hour would capable of playing it.

So, please suggest a decent player around the budget of 5k with a decent quality upscaling. Regarding other features like USB/Divx playback etc. are of less importance.
