    What difference does it make, if any, if a DVD player doesnt have Progessive scan??

    ..In context, as regards playback on a plasma display?

    Does it matter, or is progressive output better, no different, or worse?

    Depends on the plasma - if it's an ALIS plasma then, IMHO, the progressive picture looks no better than non progressive.

    If it's a non ALIS panel then progressive should look better.

    It depends on the DVD player.

    The consensus here seems to be that the PS processing on a £1.5k plasma panel is likely to be better than that of a £100 DVD player. With a £500+ player try both ways and let your eyeballs be the judge.

    The last comment is much as I thought...the panel is likely to be better at it then the DVD would be....

    Secondary question then...so what about RGB scart? Is a DVD player without it going to be much different to one that has???
