    I am very tempted by Richer Sounds £99.95 deal on the Pioneer DV575 DVD player, but if I do go for this upgrade it would purely be to gain the progressive scan feature.

    Although I have read many articles and now understand how progressive scan works to improve the picture quality, I am still not sure if these signals would be compatible with my Epson EMP TW10 projector and that is where I need your help please:

    (1) Can the Epson TW10 handle the progressive signals from the DV575 ?
    (2) Would the difference in the picture quality be noticeable or are they more noticeable on higher resolution projectors / plasmas etc ?

    Thanks in advance for any help offered.

    Yes, I have this exact combination and it works very well.

    Can't lose with Richer, take it back if you are not 100% happy.
    But for £100 it's a no brainer in my book. Cracking machine for the price....PJ

    I also have the above combination and would say that there is a real improvement in picture quality over the RGB Scart feed that I was using. Go for it.

    How does the quality compare against an X-Box as a DVD player running via component using the Hi Def Pack?

    Just curious as that's what I use at the moment and it gives a pretty good picture. I was wondering whether it's worth upgrading to a true DVD player?

    Thanks for the feedback. I will order it tomorrow and will post my thoughts once I have played with it a bit :)
