Total beginer researching a bit about plasma's: I am thinking of getting a plasma as a second display device. From the specs of the panasonic plasma's they have 852x480 pixels, this is spot on for the available resolution of an NTSC DVD so it should show reg 1 DVD's very well, without adding or taking away from the DVD's available resolution. My question is what about PAL DVD's. The best pixel resolution needed 1024 x 576. Since plasma's have fixed pixels they would need to scale that resolution to the available 852x480 pixels. Has anyone experience of artifacts and poorer image on PAL dvd's compared to NTSC? Also U.K satelite when processed to a progressive signal would still be 576p so how does this look? On a brief technical lookin it seems that they are better suited to ntsc signals. This also doesn't make sense as HDTV is 720p. The Plasma's can only resolve 480p so they need to scale the HDTV back down to standard def of 480. Can someone throw some light on the situation for me?
