panasonic 42PV500E - which dvd player?




i'm a stranger to home cinema and this is my first post here. thanks in advance for your replies.

I'm buying a panasonic 42PV500E ( and, since this monitor has HDMI input I was wondering if I should buy a dvd player with HDMI. is it worth it?

also, I read in other threads that SCART output doesn't provide progressive scanning and I would be better off connecting the dvd player to plasma with component video... on searching for a dvd player, i found the yamaha DVD-S557T ( to be well priced for me, and it has 525 and 625 progressive scanning when connected through Y Pb Pr jacks.

how do I know that the panasonic plasma is compatible with this? info in panasonic website all it say is: "G8 Progressive HD Plasma Panel"
