I've managed to borrow an Arcam DV27 from my local Hi-Fi shop for the long weekend. I'm trying it with a Sony VW11 connected via component inputs. So far, I've found very little (if any) difference between the NTSC progressive via the Arcam and the internal Sony de-interlacer. Unfortunately, this DV27 doesn't output Progressive PAL so I'm not able to fully test it. It also has 2 sets of component outputs so (I think) I'd need 2 sets of component cables: 1 for NTSC progressive and 2nd for PAL interlaced. I get no dignal from the progressive component when I put a PAL disc in. Am I missing something? I was thinking of buying this player but my current feeling is to go for a lower budget DVD player instead until more PAL progressive players are on the market. Suggestions anyone?
