The title pretty much says it. What do you do with your old dvd players. I have this old Toshiba HD player that I'm going to retire. Finally ordered a BR player this evening and wondering what folks do with the old ones.

Find a neighbour that is still stuck in the VHS era and give it to them.

We have electronic disposal sites around here that we take unwanted components to. It used to be they just went to the dump.

we still have 4 other tv's around the house, we use our old DVD players on those tvs. that way if we are watching a movie in one room, our kids can watch whatever movie they want in one of the other rooms.

That's what I've been doing too but there's a dvd player in each room now. I'll most likely give it to my brother.

I am in the same boat, with the new BR player I now have at least one if not 2 extra dvd players, one is my old Samsung HD931(?) and the other is a very cheap Daytek.

I just a couple of weeks ago gave an older one away that was just sitting around.

Next time I'm waiting for the format wars to settle before I buy again. I lost on the beta and vhs too.

Next time there's a format war, I'm going to buy two of each kind of player just to offset your lack of participation in early adoption.

The Toshiba HDDVD player I have is a very good DVD player and upscales the image really well. Original DVD's over HDMI and DVD backups over Component.

You may want to post it on a used gear site as there's still lots of HDDVD people out there looking for cheap back up players as they invested $$$ in HD-DVD disks.

I use one of my old DVD players as a CD player in my workshop setup. It plays MP3 discs as well, so I can play ~5 hours of music per disc between changes....
