    Would it be fair to say that all the recent models of DVD players do not have a chroma bug?

    No, it is not fair to say. You still have to audition the player(s) you are interested in, or read reviews published by somebody else.
    I wish more reviews would also include discussion of how well the progressive player de-interlaces non-film source material, which can vary widely in quality.

    Nope the chroma bug is still very prevalent. If you do a search over on AVS there was a thread started where people began listing DVD players and whether or not they had the bug.

    My experience has only been with Sony and Panasonic. All of the 500 and 700 series Sonys that I have seen do have the chroma bug. All of the Panasonics that I have seen (RP56, RP62, CP72, RP82 and RP91) do NOT have the chroma bug.

    So has anyone heard which new progressive scan DVD players do not have the chroma bug?
