dvd picture quality

I currently have a nvidia 6200 based video card and using the nvidia linux driver package. This is used primary for dvd video playback with xine and displayed on a Panasonic plasma tv. Would there be an improvement in picture quality with a newer 8600 based gpu or switching player software? The picture quality is decent but seems very dark compared to a console dvd player, any attempts to correct just makes the picture worse in another area. I ran a couple dvd setup discs through it and they both show certain black levels getting clipped off. Not sure if its hardware or software right now.

Not a answer to your question, but have you tried vlc? Xine seems to make things look "off" on my system as well. Things look better in vlc or mplayer but vlc handles dvd menus better.
