    How long is your piece of string compared to mine? Unfortunately without more details no one can answer this.

    :oops: sorry right

    Panasonic TH42PWD7 running components , i know the SD900 can do NTSC prog scan but what would the interlaced Pal look like

    ive read some post where people think the SD900 can do better interlaced on a plasma than most later spec Prog Scan DvD players

    just wondering if this is true

    The 900 is a very accomplished DVD player, no worries, there. The interlaced feed to the Panny (NTSC and PAL) is probably the route I would take to your Panny plasma as the deinterlacing is more recent there, however I would look at the 480p as well jus t to check. Certainly my 9000 (model before the 900) and my 9500 (model after) are probably best left out putting interlaced to the screen.

    Since you mentioned the SD-9000 I wonder whether you have done any comparisons between the interlaced output of that player and the interlaced output of more recent players. The reason I ask is that I currently have the 9000 and am considering how much benefit, if any, there would be to changing players when I replace my tv. Thanks in advance for any thoughts in this regard.

    yep all three are VERY good for this, luckily I have all three to compare ;) The SD9000/900/9500 produce stunning results for me fired via interlaced into my plasma or PJ. The 9500 also does progressive with latest firmware installed and also makes a lovely job of it.
