    What features do you need apart from progressive component out? Do you need DVD Audio compatibility or excellent audio cd playback etc?

    Off the top of my head I would say a Panasonic E-85 dvd recorder as not only will it give you excellent progressive playback but it will also do the same for your other sources so you can de-interlace normal tv broadcast etc. Plus you get superb dvd/hd recording functionality too and dvd audio support. Best price is around £500 at the moment I believe though. You could also consider the E-55 dvd recorder without hard drive. Of course if you also want top end audio cd playback you'd probably be better off looking at other models.

    If you could afford to spend another £100 then you could get an Arcam DV88+ which does progressive scan and also has excellent CD playback.

    They are available for £499 (half price) in the bargains section.
