Do you have a computer in your room? Put one in it.

No computer in the bedroom, Sugar. I think my girlfriend would walk out the door if i tried to put one in there. She is not happy with how much time i "waste" on MY version of the "one eyed monster". Her "one eyed monster" is the TV.
I had forgotten all about the Teac stuff. I'll have to check into that. All of their stuff is available on heavy discount, so the price might be quite "workable". Thanks for the tip Mike.
If there are any others, please keep them coming. I do appreciate it. Sean
That TEAC unit is available online thru several retailers. In fact, that's the only component missing from my mini "Reference" system in MY bedroom. It has the added bonus of onboard Dolby Digital decoding. Right now, ubid.com is offering these components at considerable discounts, some auctions with no reserve. THIS ISN'T A PLUG FOR UBID. But that $700 DVD player has been going for around $200- $250 per unit. New, factory sealed, and full warranty.
It IS a great opportunity for you get a good deal on some very attractive, mid-fi gear for a second system. And judging by the reviews on audioreview.com, the gear is just poorly marketed, not poorly built.
Philips also makes a "micro" standalone DVD player. Good luck.
I've seen the Teac gear up close and personal although I don't own any. The equipment appears to be very well built and the sound was very decent (I was looking more at the Teac audio stuff).
As for using a computer, personally I wouldn't want to wait for the computer to boot up, look into yet another space consuming CRT monitor to operate the computer, launch the appropriate software, and listen to the computer fan noise in the background just to watch a DVD. Sometimes it makes more sense to buy the standalone "appliance" like an inexpensive DVD player. Good luck.
