    He is talking absoulute rubbish,these players simply show the picture as a progressive image insted of interlaced whatever disc you put in it,its the way the dvd player displays the DVD not the way the dvd is encoded.

    I had this model purely because it was progressive scan, it did work but very poorly, It had a bad Horizontal streaking problem on bright objects, for this reason myself and many other forum members returned it for a full refund. I cannot believe they are still selling this crap dvd player.
    I then bought a Toshiba sd-510 which offers excellent progressive scan, but only on region 1 discs.
    You should not have a problem as many people have returned this player.

    P.S. That guy at Debenhams is talking total crap. Phone the helpline and ask to talk to a Technical person, I did this, he then told me to take it back to the shop for a refund.

    To be fair Museumsteve. Would you do that job for the money.....

    I used to have one of these players and returned it. When returning the player I took the time to explain the problem to Debenhams. The salesrep was very interested.

    Luckily they had a Sony plasma screen on display, so we hooked it up. And yes I had to explain to him to use the component inputs as he used the composite!!! But then he understood and couldn't believe the poor picture. He asked me whether I was in a hurry as he wanted my assistance with some other players.
    Anyway we tried out five more and all had the same problem.

    I don't know whether it was in his power to do anything, but he couldn't believe that they were selling these faulty machines.

    What I can't believe is that a magazine like What HiFi is giving this machine 5 starts. What Hifi has really lost all respect for me.

    Cheers,

    JP
