just got a 42" panasonic plasma pH9. had my heart set on getting an OPPO 981 DVD player but after doing a few searches, i found on AVSFORUM that some were saying the combination of: OPPO+Panasonic plasma = macroblocking so maybe the OPPO for me isn't worth the $230 + $60 shipping. would any of you have any suggestions for a decent progressive DVD player (Pioneer 490S for example?) with HDMI (my component is taken up by the cable box) for my PH9 to hold me over until HD DVD/Bluray is more economical? many thanx!!!
