Samsung DVD-HD870/XEU DVD Player With HDMI Upscaling
i have had a few other dvd players upscalers in the past but this in my opinion is the best i have used. I bought this to replace my old hdmi upscaler which had come to the end of its lifespan. It was connected to a projector and produced very good picture but when i swapped them ove rthe difference was very noticeable especially in dark scenes. I have been left impressed by the quality of this player. Compared to my hd dvd and bluray players it is the closest i have seen. I would hapilly pay the 60 pounds this player costs with the quality u get in return.
Logitech Harmony 525 Advanced Universal Remote Control
i have a whole host of av equipment in my house and now i don't have any gripe leaving my old remotes stored away as i no longer need any of them. With Previous all in one remotes i was a bit unsure as to whether they would actually respond 100% of the time not so the logitech. With one press of a button u can get tv sky and surround to start or whatever combination u want, it goes to right channel right surround input etc. U have to add this manually initially on the web based interface so neer an internet connection but once setup its a marvel
At the moment i control 2 tvs infocus projector, 3 dvd players, 2 surround systems xbox 360 and media centre pc. Takes about 30 minutes to setup but well worth it.
Best remote i have ever used
Sling Media SlingBox Solo
1 New from
i had a slingbox solo from play together with the slinglink as my router is far from my tv setup. I had it connected and streaming tv around the house in no time with very good picture quality. stream runs between 2.5 to 4.5mb producing very good image.
the UPnP wasn't recognised by the software so i had to manually open a port which is no big deal and then i could watch tv from any remote location with wifi or vIa 3g on your mobile . streams at around 400kb remotely with a perfectly watchable image.
My only gripe and is that i bought an svideo scart subsequently to improve quality further but the image comes across in black and white so i had to revert to composite. Subsequently i found out this is a fault with the sky boxes and not with the slingbox All in all an excellent product which allows me to watch sky when im at work or abroad
