I have just got a new AE700 having upgraded from an AE300 (actually panasonig gave it to me after numerous faults with AE300 !) and was wondering whether people think it is worth upgrading my DVD player to one of the new upscaling HDMI players like Panaonic S97 or Samsung HD945. I have currently got a decent Pioneer 656 (non progressive scan) but to be honest the image still looks very good to me. I am concerned about spending say £250 on DVD and HDMI cable and then finding it is no better or in fact worse - cropping, macroblocking etc. Is there really much difference getting one of these upscaling DVD players as internally the AE700 has to upscale anyway and is the scaler on the DVD that much better ? I have seen something about feeding interlaced rather than progressive to AE700 actually produces a better picture . The other reason I am concerned is that with the advent of HD DVD and Sky going high-def next year would I be wasting my money . I also use the projector quite a lot for watching stuff ok SKY+ including movies and there is no way to improve the picture here except for buying really expesnive scale like Iscan. Thanks for any thoughts on this.
