As a new member i have been reading the various relevant threads especially the simon1967 one. I have the svp 400 plus with progressive scan and a Denon 2800 dvd player. With dvd i cannot say anything negative about the picture except detail in long distance shots. It is so natural looking and definitely a step up with progressive scan. Of course with the next leap forward into HD dvd i am waiting to make the change in the necessary equipment as i have just done with my new M&K 150 thx front and rear speakers with Arcam amp/pre-amp separates. What i need to know is my 3600hrs used projector with plastic lenses able to display HD to make a difference with any costs involved and has it the necessary connections? Another associated issue is the fan noise. It's not overly intrusive when you get used to it but i have read about the changing of the fan or building of a box around the pj. Any comments?
