Does JVC's XV-S60BK DVD player really do 3:2 pulldown?

    Crutchfield is advertising the new JVC XV-S60BK DVD player as one which does 3:2 deinterlacing. The JVC website does not mention this. Even if it doesn't do the 3:2, for a progressive scan player, $250 sounds like a great deal. If it actually did 3:2 I think it would be a steal!
    Does anyone have this player or it's gold finished brother (JVC XV-S65GD)?

    I have been trying to get the same question answered. I think the player can be found online for about $200, which would be nothing short of remarkable for a chroma bug-free, 3:2 progressive scanning player with MP3 audio playback and 4:3>16:9 auto-zooming.
    The RP91 costs something like twice as much, as does the Malata -- and lord only knows how long the latter will last. I almost bought a Malata, but am waiting to see whether the S60BK does 3:2. If it does do 3:2, I can't justify spending double to be able to watch on the Malata what few non-R1 titles interest me. (Not to mention the auto-zoom is much more convenient for non-HT geeks in the family.)

    I'm looking at this one very closely too. Good luck.
