Anyone using Video Output on their DVD players?
I'm looking for a Wi-Fi player that looks as good on Video Output (for Closed Captioning) as my non Wi-Fi Panasonic does. I realize it's not HD, but it's still a very good picture.
I tried a Sony Wi-Fi, finally got the Component Output to work, then found out that Sony had disabled Closing Captioning on that output. The Video output was washed out so I took it back.
Most of the manufacturers seem to be dropping the Component Output feature.
Thanks for any suggestions.

Might try a Samsung BD player. I've got a lot of devices that play DVDs or BDs, and stream and the Sammys have the best PQ for streaming. They all seem to play DVDs or BDs about equally. I'm not a big Sammy fan, but I've got 4 Sammys and the e6500 model is Wi-Fi capable. Hard to find them, the new Sammys are out and if you go to Amazon and search for the e6500 you'll just find used players, but you'll see a note that says the new model is out and gives you the model #. Don't know about the CC options tho.
