    I am in the market for a new DVD player.

    Do I need a tv that also does a 3:2 pulldown in order to benefit from a DVD player that does it too?

    Do I need a tv that puts out 480P in order to benefit from a progressive scan dvd player?

    I have a KV36FS12 (last years sony wega model)

    What does Nueon (sp?) enhanced mean?

    Thanks.

    Mike - I understand that:

    - a progressive scan-capable TV is required to display the progressive output from such a DVD player. Otherwise, it will just display the interlaced output.

    - You only want one device doing the de-interlacing, 3:2 pulldown, etc. So if the DVD player does it, the TV doesn't need to, and conversely. If you look at the TV section, you'll find posts about some TVs doing equivalent, or better, jobs at line-doubling, 3:2 pulldown, etc. With such a TV, with a non-progressive DVD player, you get nearly the same (perhaps better?) performance as with a progressive DVD player.

    Hope this helps.
