    Hey guys. I currently have a Denon 2800 (working perfectly - for once) DVD player. On my CRT the quality was stunning. On my new LCD I have it connected via component (quality cables) and progressive scan is on. There is a lot of noticable artifacting and some soft edges that give a similar appearance to dot crawl. Does anyone know how an upscaled DVD to 720P would look for comparison, from say one of the new Denons with HDMI on this screen? I understand that it would be closer to native resolution, but as I understand it the artifacts and soft edges would still be there. Am I right, or should I spend a small fortune on a new player :).

    PS - it isnt the quality of the 2800 that is the problem. I used a pioneer at 480P and the quality was even worse!

    Hi benmiles I have the denon 3910 hooked up to the panasonic AE700 projector which is LCD, via HDMI 10m cable and I think the picture looks better when the dvd player is upscaling to 720p rather than the normal 480p. Infact it looks amazing. Just looks that bit sharper.
