    It seems a lot of dvd players do progressive scan in NTSC but not PAL.
    This is the only thing putting me offf the pioneer 565 player I have recently seen.
    Does it look different if the disc gets transfered to NTSC first? I'm thinking it would do.
    Is this enough to put you off a player

    PAL prog has only recently been ratified, hence the delay but there are now quite a few players capable of both e.g. Sony 930/730 , Samsung 935, Yamaha? and HK models do.
    If you spend more you also get both SACD and DVD-A.
