    I'm the proud owner of a new 37" PE50 plasma. I'm really happy with it but have a question. My current DVD player (Sony NS900V) has component outputs (which I'm using) but does not output progressive scan. Would it be a big improvement to change my DVD player to one that does output progressive scan or stick with what I have.

    If so, which player would you suggest.

    Thanks

    Ash. :)

    Apparently if you're feeding the PE50 an interlaced signal, the TV itself will do the progressive scan bit...

    Cool, so I'm already watching the dvd using progressive scan, although the tv is actually doing this for me.

    Does this apply to anything pluged in? ie my sky+ box via RGB or just my component inputs?

    I sold my NS900, and bought a Pioneer 575 from Richers for £99. The quality on my 37PE50 is better than the NS900 IMO :)

    Hmm ok.

    But will it match my sony for audio, I do listen to Cd's using this dvd player also.

    If I'm going to swap my dvd player then I'll probably change the amp so they look good.

    What would you suggest?

    this is not necessarily true, as has been pointed out to you before. the plasma will always display everything in progressive, as the panel is progressive. if the plasma can do a better job at de-interlacing than the player, interlaced will look better.

    AFAIK, the Panasonic on-board deinterlacer does not have film mode - not a good thing if you're asking it to deinterlace 24 fps originated material.

    Ahh, you never mentioned the the CD's before. That I can't tell you, as I never used mine for CD replay. The only way to know is to try them for yourself.

    Thanks guys,

    I'll probably wait a while and save up for an Arcam DV78 player. That does progressive scan and is an excellent DVD player.
