Sorry in advance for the length of this post but I wanted to give as much info as possible so you experts out there might be able to help me better! HELP! PLEASE! I need a new DVD player. Here are the current specs of my system : Samsung SP43L2HX/XEA Rear projection LCD TV The TV has the following inputs : 2 x RGB Scart 1 x Comp Scart 1 X S-Video 1 X Set of Component Phonos (3 Y/Pb/Pr) 1 X DVI 1 X PC HD15 D Plug 1 X Composite Phono The manual says the following : "The RCA Component inputs are used for equipment with a DVD output. (480i, 480p, 576i, 576p)" "The DVI (video) connector is used for equipment with a DVI output - The DVI does not support the Analog R,G,B signals" "The colour systems supported by the TV are PAL, SECAM, NTSC NT4.43" A logo on the telly says "Progressive XGA" and the sticker that was stuck to the screen says "w-XGA High Resolution and 100% Digital Visual Interface" There is also a table headed : "Input Mode (PC/DVI)" The following modes are supported : 640x480, 720x400, 800x600, 1024x768, 848x480 It also lists lots of V and H frequencys etc... Phew.... Ok, now I want to watch the occasional Region 1 disc on DVD-R but my main source of viewing pleasure are rented discs from Blockbuster - all region 2 of course! I need to buy a DVD player and haven't a clue which to buy - Should I go for one with a DVI output ? Should I hook up via component ? Which players have true PAL Progressive output ? Will I still get Progressive ouput via DVI ?? Help ! My budget is anything up to £500 but I would like to spend £300 or less. I am not interested in audio facilities or such like - I just want movies ! I bought a Cambridge Audio HD59 from Richer Sounds today - £199 for the player and £90 for 3 phono cables (1 metre) to connect it - but when i put the R2 Terminator 3 disc in the player plays interlaced in PAL and when i switch to progressive the OSD from the player states "Progressive NTSC" - If I bring the Info Display of the TV up it also states the input as 480p which I believe is NTSC - I am assuming that the DVD in Progressive Mode is converting the PAL signal to NTSC which I also assume is a *BAD* thing ?? I am planning to take the HD59 back tomorrow because of this but what should I buy ????
