Looking for a DVD player for no more than $200. I need either DVI or component outputs.

You can get Samsung DVD-HD841s all day on eBay for cheap. Universal non-HD discs, upconversion on DVI output, pretty good overall. I have one and it sounds excellent for the price with some mild mods. It doesn't have full HD-DVD/SACD controls though.

If you can stretch to $250, the Panasonic DVD-S77 is a superb player. I've read great reviews and they seem good from playing with them in stores. If I had an HD TV now, that's the player I'd get.

I have a Panasonic. Don't know the model number straight off but it is a universal player and has most of the bells and whistles. Multi outputs. 12 bit video and 24 bit audio, IIRC. Nice player and I got it on sale at CC for $150 or so.
