Getting the Panasonic PT-50DL54 which has " Progressive Scan Doubler (enhanced)". What exactly does this mean? Also, how will this tv handle a) a basic progressive scan dvd player connected via component, b) an upconverting progressive scan dvd player connected via component, c) both a & b connected via hdmi? To be more specific, can/should I shut off the progressive scanning of the tv or the dvd player because one is doing a better job than the other? Sorry to be asking so many noob type questions about this but I can be pretty anal about this stuff and I like to make the best out of the hardware I get without any confusion when setting up and configuring.

Thanks,

Steve

ps: is avia still a good tool to use with a tv such as the one mentioned above?

Of it were only so simple, to be a universal correct answer on these things....

Really some modern displays, do best when fed 480i over component video, and letting the display do it it all.

Others really benefit from great 480p input from DVD, and others still benefit greatly from 1080i input from DVD.

Same on the DVI/HDMI -vs- Component Video as well.

Clear as mud huh????

Yes I figured as much. I guess I will just try everything and see what works best. Thanks for the input.
