    OK, I think I've got the whole 3:2 pull-down straight on TVs--the TV squishes the screen down so a to provide better resolution in the area where the image of a wide-screen DVD is going to be displayed. If that's correct than what does 3:2 pull-down on a progressive scan DVD player do? I've seen the pull-down feature on analog TVs but I have yet to see a DVD player that can do it and is not progressive scan. Do only progressive scan players have this feature? Why is that? And what does it do? Can someone clear all this up for me please?

    Thanks,
    Scott

    You're confusing 2:3 pulldown with the so-called "squeeze trick" on certain 4:3 televisions. As Michael notes, the two are completely different.
