I've read through a couple similar threads, but still have some lingering questions. I hope you guys can/will lend a hand. I'm not new to DVD's - I've been watching them for years on a Creative Labs 12x drive, S-video-out to my tv (800x600). I've been more than happy with the picture quality - no flicker, no skipping, no noticable frame dropping. I'm interested solely in a single-disc player, and I'll be using it (at least for a couple years) on a "regular" 4:3 tv set (about a year old) - I need a few things cleared up: 1. Progressive Scan. From what I understand, this is only beneficial if you're using a widescreen tv, and therefore would only be a "plan for the future" thing for me. Correct me if I'm wrong, and if I am, let me know what it will do for me in the meantime. 2. The Chroma Bug. I can't get a good idea of what this exactly is. 3. Downconversion. Is this still an issue with modern players? Again, I'm not to clear on what it is and hoe it might affect me and my tv. 4. Flicker. Is this a problem? Still? It seems to me any player that skips or flickers (on a non-hacked-up disc) is unacceptable - to me anyway. As stated, I've been learning as much as possible. I'm looking at the Panasonic RP-56, the Toshiba SD3750 for "progressive scan" models. For NON-PS models, I'm leaning towards: Pioneer DV-343, Panasonic DRV31k, Toshiba SD2710. Are my choices sound? Any help here is welcome. Thanks!
