I must say I am not very 'hot' on electronics and gadgets, but I did know that I wanted a High Definition DVD player to hook up to my HD Samsung TV. Then of course I was confused about the difference between HD and Blu-ray, after doing a bit of research and talking to a few people I decided to go with Blu-ray. I am so pleased I did, when I set this up and watched the first DVD on it I was amazed by how good the picture quality is. I am so glad I bought this player although my only regret is that I bought it from a certain high street retailer for more money. I just have one problem now, before I bought this I had a Panasonic home cinema system and enjoyed the surround sound, however I cannot work out how I can hook up this HD DVD player to that. The only thing I can do is play it through the 'AV' option which looses the great sound. Does anyone know of any speakers/surround sound kit that can be bought and hooked up to the Blu-ray player? Like I said apart from that, excellent piece of kit!
