Replacement for Onkyo DVD Player

I have an older and low cost Onkyo home theatre system of which the DVD player died recently. The AV receiver is an Onkyo HT-500. So my question is: what's the best cheapo DVD player upgrade route here? My guess is that there is some low cost DVD player that would improve the viewer experience by delivering higher resolution off the same DVD movies than the old DVD player could, and I need to be careful about compatability between the receiver and the new player, including the connections. Any advice?

You do not worry about the DVD player, any brand of DVD Player has compatible for that system because the output of all DVD player has already synchronizing the output impedance of the DVD to the input of your system. And you are looking for the best resolution of DVD player so you can try either sony, jvc, pioneer.and many more, but the best thing you can do is to bring the sample CD that you already know the picture and then you can try to play into the DVD that what you have selected.

Hello Fixya team, I need help!

To set up your home theater system with the equipment you mentioned, follow these steps:
  1. Connect the Onkyo receiver to the NEC TV using an HDMI cable. Make sure the HDMI input on the TV is set to the correct input for the Onkyo receiver.
  2. Connect the Panasonic DVD player to the Onkyo receiver using an HDMI cable.
  3. Connect the Firestick Lite to the Onkyo receiver using an HDMI cable.
  4. Connect the Panasonic speakers to the Onkyo receiver using speaker wires. Make sure you connect the speakers to the correct speaker terminals on the receiver, which are usually labeled with the speaker's position (e.g. front left, front right, center, surround left, surround right).
  5. Configure the Onkyo receiver to use the correct input for each device. For example, set the input to "DVD" when you want to watch a movie on the Panasonic DVD player, or set the input to "Firestick" when you want to watch content on the Firestick Lite.
  6. Configure the audio settings on the Onkyo receiver to use the correct audio format for your content. For example, if you are watching a movie with Dolby Digital surround sound, make sure the receiver is set to decode Dolby Digital audio.
  7. Adjust the volume and other audio settings on the Onkyo receiver as needed to optimize the sound quality.
Once you have completed these steps, you should be able to enjoy surround sound audio from your Panasonic speakers through the Onkyo receiver.
