    Why are there no decent PAL progressive DVD players on the market?

    If it's NTSC region 1 you want. There is loads of choice, just look at the Secrets Progressive Scan shootout, it's in it's third year now.

    From what I can see, there are only 2 DVDs that are PAL progressive off the self.

    Arcam FMJ-27 £1300
    Arcam DiVA 88+/89 £800

    There are a couple of others that can be PAL prog enabled!?

    Philips 963SA
    Nad T562
    Harmen Karden DVD25
    Denon 2900

    But nothing seems to quite fit the bill.

    I want a DVD player that is free of the Chroma Bug.
    I want a DVD player that has selectable audio delay
    I want a DVD player that can squeeze 4:3 material because my silly old plasma can't display 4:3 in progressive mode!!!!!

    None of the above quite fits the bill. I would buy an iScan Ultra but that doesn't except an input of RGB signals!!!

    When are the electronics companies going to get their act together?

    I liked the look of the Denon 2900, but the Secrets review on the Denon 3800 poured water on the way the Denon handles Chroma upsampling, said it was not a very good solution!

    I've got 42" Plasma panel and I just want to feed it a decent DVD signal. I've got £1000, I'm waiting to spend. Why, oh, why can't I find a product to suit my requirements? Is it too much to ask?
