    I'm in search of a DVD player that will work nicely in my
    system. I use the component outputs to send a progressive
    signal to my HD TV, and I use the composite output to modulate
    the output onto a channel that is sent to the rest of the house.
    Since the DVD player is in a rack in the basement, but controllable
    and viewable anywhere in the house, I would also like it to be a
    5 disc carousel so we can leave some DVDs in there all the time that our
    toddler likes to watch. In the past I have settled for units that have
    a progressive button on the front and when I want the better 480p
    signal on the HD tv I just press it since it's next to the HD TV. But if
    I don't remember to take it out of progressive mode my wife can't
    always figure out how to get it to work again.

    I've trolled around on the internet and looked at several manuals
    but they don't always indicate how the composite signal is affected
    while in progressive mode. So any personal experience from others
    would be invaluable.

    So in short, is there a 5 disc carousel player that outputs 480p and
    480 simultaneously, as well as digital and analog audio simultaneously.

    Thanks.

    Probably not much help, but I think Naim's dvd players will output an interlaced and progressive signal at the same time.

    Many players, including most if not all Denon, Pioneer, Marantz, etc., have multiple video dacs to support simultaneously active outputs, such as progressive on component while interlaced on composite/s-video. It seems to be mainly budget players which switch between active outputs. However, even budget players can offer this too. For example, I think players based on mediatek mt1389 chipset - which has integrated multiple (6) 12bit/108MHz video dacs in current versions - provide multiple active o/ps.

    I went cheap and bought the Sony DVP-NC80VB and luckily it did everything I needed. Thanks.
