Hi folks. In my search for a half-decent budget kit, I have decided to go for the Tosh 32WLT66 LCD TV, as it looks good to me. Stage 2 will be a DVD player... ideally with SACD and DVD-A as I intend to add an AV Receiver later. Currently I have a very old Pio 360 DVD player, which has given me years of good service. It's Multi-region and has been outputting pure NTSC and PAL signals (I have 50/50 each format on DVD) to a Sharp CRT 28" widescreen TV thru RGB SCART. As far as I'm concerned, the video quality has been excellent and the one problem I ever noticed was that when entering a new scene, the cbrightness seems to adjust itself in 3 steps to the correct level. Barely noticeable to blind people (like my wife, who couldn't tell the difference between Sky via SCART when RGB was flipped off then on). So, Pio owners, can you tell me what to expect when I go from 28" CRT to 32" LCD and move from RGB SCART to HDMI? How much better will a progressive image seem, and what kind of difference should I expect if I upscale to, say, 720p? Should I upscale to 1080i? And also, does the 696 have all the PAL problems the 490 suffers from, as detailed here: http://www.dvdtimes.co.uk/content.php?contentid=61831 (I know there's a combined thread for the 490/696 but that's one hell of a thread to search!) Basically, I want to choose between this and the 92V Sony, and intend to buy in the next few months. Can anyone convince me to skip the Pio, or will it be worth the cash?
