DVD/VCR Player??

My current RCA DVD/VCR combo is on its last legs and I need to get a different one.
I have been looking around and I have been very confused by the new stuff that came out in just the last 5 years. I have a Samsung 27" HD TV that is 1080i/1080p and I also have Dish Network though I only subscribe to their family package. So I would like to get a DVD/VCR combo that can change the normal definition into HD so I can use the full capabilities of the TV.

I have been looking around for the past 3 weeks and I am still undecided on which one to get, from what I read, JVC, Panasonic, Sony and Samsung all have models that can upconvert both DVD/VCR into HD. Then I read the reviews and my head starts to spin, I see anywhere from the best thing since sliced bread to total garbage on the same unit :dunno:

Which DVD/VCR combo would you recommend?

I think is what I got ...is working fine (I haven't used the VCR yet :whistling:).

As Tony mentioned, even if a DVD states that us capable of 1080p picture, is an up-conversion not true HD ...but is a lot better than regular DVD's :yes:
But you could easily get into the debate about whether the player or the display has the better scaler. I somewhat doubt that a $50 player will have that good a scaler. It will in part come down to how well the display handles the signal.
