    I've got a Pioneer NS-DV55 and want to upgrade my TV to a widescreen model. I've been told in two showrooms that 100Hz TVs are less compatible with DVD playback than 50Hz sets, yet a Toshiba sales rep said there was no difference. Got any advice?

    Thanks

    Hi<br />I've had two 100hz TVs (Sony Wega 32" & now a 36") and both worked brilliantly with my Samsung DVD. You can really see the difference - the picture is so stable and sharp it's a pleasure to watch.<br />ALso, I am considering purchasing the Pioneer NV55 like you have got - are you pleased with it? My only concern is whether I should go for a dedicated AV amp and speakers instead of the 'home cinema all-in-one-box".

    Cheers

    I think the problem is not the source, but the TV itself. Earlier 100hz sets from some manufacturers had problems regardless of the source.

    I have a friend who bought a really expensive Lowe 100hz set and said the picture went block with ordinary TV playing.

    Best way to check is to find somewhere that will link the player you want to the TV you want, get a DVD and play it, try to find something where the screen pans a lot as this will push it to the limit.

    I think that the problem is that the signal is digitised twice if you use a DVD into a 100HZ TV, so any problems will be magnified.<br />The best thing I would say is to try different TV´s and see how they look.<br />Do not forget to make sure that it is possible to switch the 100HZ processing off.<br />100HZ TV´s using digital processing are a lot better that say 2 years ago, but for me they always make un-natural pictures with part of the picture always appearing to be playing catchup with the rest of the picture. DVD has this problem, but the processing is much better. There is a limmit to the processing in most TV´s. DVD´s digital processing is done by a powerful computer. that you or me could not afford. <br />Possibly in another two or three years 100HZ (or greater) will work just fine when the cost of the good real time processing will have come down. <img src="smile.gif" border="0">
