I'm considering buying a fancy upconverting DVD Player, as my current player is a cheapo Wal-Mart special. This is the one I am looking at, the OPPO DV-980H.
But for nearly $200, the thought occurred to me that I might as well just invest in an Xbox 360 instead.
The thing is... I don't feel I'm getting my money's worth out of my HDTV with my current DVD player, as the upconversion is rather.. meh. I don't want to purchase an HD disc player until the format war is over, so that option is out the window. I want my DVD movies to look as good as they possibly can. But I also know that I am going to buy an Xbox 360 eventually... But I do own a fuckton of DVD movies and I'd like them to hold up against HD content, as I don't plan on ever rebuying all of those movies in HD anyways.
How does the 360 stack up as a DVD player? Do the newer models with HDMI upconvert?
