    I have a new Samsung DLP TV 46" #305HLP4663 w/ HD and manufacturer claims this TV has a built in scaler to convert all incoming signals to the DLP chips native 1028 x 720(720p) resolution.

    My questions is, with this technology I described above, will I see a differance with a DVD player that can upconvert a standard progressive scan DVD signal(480p) to an HD compatible 720p, 768p or 1080i signal?

    My next question is, can I buy a regular DVD player(that doesn't have the built in upconversion technology) and still enjoy a great picture via the TVs built in scaler?

    Next, if this is so, can I get a regular DVD player(that doesn't have the built in upconversion technology) with a DVI connector?

    Sorry if this seems obvious to some, I would really appreciate any input you forum members could add.

    Thanks in advanced! :smashin:

    Hi carlnunes, welcome to the forum. I'm sorry I can't answer your questions but maybe you could answer mine! What part of the world do you live in and how much did your T.V. cost?
    Cheers,
    Oddbodd.

    p.s. do you have a link to a picture of it?

    Depends on the relative quality of the scalers in player and display. If for example your TV has a Faroudja scaler built in, but the DVD has a lower quality proprietory chip, then best quality should be seen by feeding an un-scaled signal to the set using DVI.
