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.

If your Speakers are in good condition, you can try buying a suitable wattage AV receiver with a bluray player of your choice brand ( Yamaha, Onkyo, Harmnkardon, Denon, Sherwood...etc) You can utilise your favorite speakers again.
I just fixed mine with the same problem. Apparently, the HT-R667 and 606 receiver that comes with 6100 has a problem with the HDMI board. Onkyo wanted $500 dollars to fix it, costed me $16.
Here's how to fix it.
and the youtube vid:
easy.connect the dvd trough optical cable to the amplifier home theatre for surround sound and the video where it says DVD input and the sony cassete deck where it says cd in A/V the red cable wwhite and yellow,
the problem of the tv sound though speaker and the dvd player,have no audio output maybe the input from the receiver is wrong, always patch the line in to the receiver. patch the av cable one by one.pls see at the back of the receiver. note always patch the cable to audio in.
