Phillips has a really nice upconverting DVD player for around $50, I get excellent color and reproduction on mine.

In the meantime if your current DVD player has settings try adjusting those.

Thanks I think I'm going to try that. Im also going to see if I can even get an upconverting player for under $100 to keep me satisfied till I get the Vizio Blu Ray Player out in April thanks again Bill

You think It will look a lot better even thought the upscaling player will push it to 1080P and the TV is only capable of receiving 780P signal?. My old player I guess is only 480P? thanks Bill

I got this upconverting player when I got my Vizio VO32LF:

I watched some of my standard "Planet Earth" DVD's and all I can say is wow. Now I'm sure Blu Ray is even sharper, but this DVD player matched with a Vizio set is pretty impressive, and I am sure it will allow me to take my time wading into the Blu Ray waters.

also don't forget that an upconverting DVD player can only upconvert via HDMI so you'll need one. If you don't mind waithing a few days www.monoprice.com is the best place to get them for fantastic prices. Now if you don't want to wait then don't buy them at Best Buy, Radio Shack etc, get them at either Walmart or if you have an Apple Store near by. You can get some really good HDMI cables for around $20 at both stores. I would not pay anymore than $20 to $30(max) for an HDMI cable sold at retail stores.

Default WOW! Upconversion Player

SMT & MaineHDTV
You guys were right!! Wow what a difference. I went to Costco they had the Sony DVP-NS601HP on sale original price $74 $10 off so I got it for $64 with a HDMI Cable included. I went to Best Buys Sears and Circuit City they all had players over $75 to $100+. I wanted to spend as little as possible because when Vizio comes out in April with their Blu Ray Player for under $200 Ill buy that to replace the Sony I just got so for now I'm set and don't have to replace any movie yet!!I also have purchased numerous cables from Mono Price I think their stuff is great and Ive used their HDMI cables at friends and relatives setups. The Up Conv Player makes the Movies look 100 times clearer, vivid and Ive seen things on some of the DVDs Ive had for years that I never knew were there. Wow you guys were correct don't get rid of the TV upgrade the DVD player. I even Calibrated the TV with the Joe Kane Disc and the colors and setting were pretty much great where I had them when watching TV what a difference!! Thanks again
