is specifying 480p giving the player more 'work' to do, rather than having it on "unprocessed".. even if my plasma has only 480 horizontal lines?... i can see no difference, and lip sync remains unchanged regardless of 480p or unprocessed setting. on certain discs (BTTF trilogy / Se7en and others) why would pal-prog + dd5.1 decoding be fine, but pal-prog + DTS decoding give lip sync issues... AND interlaced + DTS is less OOS but still noticable. I thought with a 37" plasma, interlaced would be poor, especially ntsc.... but i can't see that much difference. Have i been a victim of pal-prog hype, when it is only truely useful with 60"+ projector setups?.... my original thought when buying a player was "the plasma will work on any image given to it, so get a prog scan player and let it do the work and this will reduce any possible delay (causing sync issues) to a minimum. when some DTS tracks are out of sync, the sound comes before the picture, but the player does all the sound decoding, I just use the six channel out and my hi-fi amplifies the sound. I have always imagined that DTS is more difficult to decode, but if I get a sync issues with DTS, I assume that the player is able to output this quicker to the hi-fi than it does a Dolby digital 5.1 soundtrack. does anybody have any thoughts on any of the points I have made...? has anybody experienced the same things?
