    Watched Matrix III last night. Just realised today that the player was outputting interlaced, so did a comparison with a test DVD.. there seems to be zero differnce (to my eye at least).... why's this then ?! If its de-interlacer is that wonderful how comes my component PS2 picture looks quite blocky still.

    With my old Z1 projector, which was damned good for its time, it made a heck of a difference switching between int & progressive

    I would guess the deinterlacing capability of your DVD player about matches that of the projector. With the Z1 the deinterlacing was much poorer so it made a bigger difference.

    PS2 looks blocky cos that's the games in the first place not down to the quality of deinterlacing (that would require some quite severe compression artefact filtering - or a PS3 :D ).
