I apologize if this is a rookie question but I went into a store today to buy a Sony XBR 36" HD TV and a DVD player also. I was expecting to need a progressive scan DVD player but the salesman talked me out of it saying progressive scan was only useful at looking at still pictures and for the extra money was simply not worth it. I ended up buying a non-progressive scan player but have the option of returning it. I am without television now and wanted to buy something so I figured I'd take his word for it and check it out later. Can anybody help me figure out whether the progressive scan would add any real value b/c I budgeted to buy it and don't mind paying extra if it will make a difference. THanks in advance.
