Its the Samsung TXN2771HFX. It says that the Pro Chip Plus converts all analog signals to 480p or progressive scan. So do I need to buy a progressive scan DVD player? Would my current interlaced player give me the same picture quality as a progressive scan player? This TV also has 3:2 pulldown so thats not a problem.

Not necessary but....
