Viewing HD content is not the problem lock Sony KDL-40V2500. Even playing a regular DVD upscaling, or if it seems HD-upconverting DVD player OPPO DV-980H or Sony DVP-NS77H itself. I heard that you can use the remote to operate the DVD player, Sony V2500 series. SD (standard or display) is also good and better than other LCD-TV, and almost the same level as the old CRT tube TV.
On the remote control is not bad, but there is some dissatisfaction with some of the owners, he said that feals free or clunky. Likely to be met in order to get a universal remote anyway, if you do not like the factory TV remote.
