Plasma ignoramus, so please be patient... On Saturday I am to take delivery of my first plasma - an Hitachi 42PD5200. My current DVD player is an old Sony 735D which is hooked up via a (non progressive) component output. With the Hitachi's Alis screen would I notice any improvement going to a progressive scan player, if not are more modern players likely to give a significantly better image (I am budgeting around £600 but could go upto £1000 if it was outstanding - multiregion is a must). I was eyeing up one of the HDMI Pioneers and was wondering if HDMI to DVI via an adaptor would either work or be worth it. Will things like the Iscan help with the image on this screen? As a general issue after reading some scare stories I am a bit paranoid about trying my 2.35:1 DVD's out when I get it (border top and bottom) will it be safe and if not how long should I wait? (assuming I calibrate contrast + brightness to decent level using DVE) Lots of questions, any info welcome.
