    I have a Xenta VT-S205 1080p upscaling DVD player.

    It was purchased in December 2013 for £15 from Ebuyer.

    It hasn't been used in many years.

    I plugged it in today (via. several different HDMI cables) into a Samsung UE46ES5500 TV (a 2012 model). I've also tried two other HD TVs.

    All DVDs appear extremely pixelated. As in, below the standard DVD-Video resolution of 576p. They appear to be playing in half resolution.

    There aren't many settings to change but those that do exist are all set correctly:
    • Aspect Radio: 16:9
    • View Mode: Original (not Pan & Scan or Zoom)
    • TV System: PAL (I tried NTSC, just in case)
    • Video Out: HDMI
    • HD Resolution: 1080p (I've tried 1080i also)
    Anyone heard of anything like this happening before and what could be causing it?

    Sorry for the late reply, but it seems on Amazon there are some reviews stating this exact fact. Try another DVD player and that will probably be your culprit.
