    Hi all

    Wondered if somebody could give me some advice. I have a pansonic plasma coming tomorrow (non HD) and want a dvd/system to go with it but have a query. One system I like is ntsc progressive only and i did some asking around today with different answers. Bearing in mind I never buy region 1 dvd's. Some said it made no difference on TV's now, some said that I must have Pal progressive to get a better picture from the R2 disks, and one other said that pal is better but an ntsc would still output progressive on a pal disk but not at full pal line structure. This last answer is something i read elsewhere.
    Please shed some light on this if you can for me.

    Your plasma is a progressive panel. Whatever input you feed it via component the panel will scale progressively itself. If you buy a PS DVD player unless it's a very very good one it is unlikely to do a better scaling job than what your Plasma could do anyway.HTH.
