    Readers may understand my post better by reading what I have wrote in the Progressive Scan Section of the Forum.

    I do not currently own a progressive scan DVD player however I am very keen on the relatively new Sony DVPNS930 which as you all probably know is PAL/NTSC Progressive Scan capable. I currently own a Sony DVPNS705 which I bought around a year ago due to its SACD and excellent video performance and DVD+RW/+R compatibility. It is still a great machine and I will keep on using it if the benefits I will get by buying the 930 cannot be justified.

    I watch a lot of sporting events on the 705 recorded on DVD+RW which are sourced from TV broadcasts (such as Football matches, and so on).

    However, recently becoming a projector owner, fast movement and camera plans look blurred which I am assuming a progressive scan player will irradiate to a certain degree. However as TV pictures are naturally interlaced, what is the quality of the Sony 930 de-interlacer in regard to viewing such recordings?

    As I understand, the 930 scaler chip is the same one fitted to the higher spec 999 machine.
    The 999 got torn apart for its shoddy de-interlacing by "the secrets of home cinema" or some website that specialises in AV.

    Bare in mind that secrets reviewed a very early version of the 999ES, an NTSC Region 1 model which was out in the US much earlier than here. The 999ES also has 10 customisable levels of deinterlacing between film and video, as well as others which secrets fail to mention. They did also did not evauate PAL deinterlacing capability for obvious reasons. Sony don't make a DVD player that has scaling capabilities.

    For some much fairer reviews of PAL versions of Sony and other players, have a look at http://www.cine4home.de
