    I have the Sony 53hs10 (has component video).

    Do all RPTV systems with component video support 480p?

    I am assuming that the 480p is the format for progressive scan is that correct?

    I was concidering a multiple disk DVD player since I need a new CD player and would also like to get a new DVD player. Seemed like this may be a good way to go or would this be a mistake in that I will compromise performance in some way?

    Your TV must specifically support 480p. Check your manual

    Thanks

    The manual only lists 1080I maximum but I found many reviews on-line that state how well this RPTV works in 480P using what they call its native resolution and line doubled 480I which runs with 960 lines so I guess the 53hs10 does support it.

    If you are looking for a new DVD player as well as CD changer, you may want to consider getting seperate pieces. It may run you a little more compared to getting a 5 disc DVD changer for an all-in-one, but getting two pieces may give you better results in both categories.

    I thought about it [​IMG] you are right best to go separate when I looked at the price difference. Thanks.
    BTW: given your input I decided to try to get my ailing cd player working. I opened the unit up and manually cleaned everything in site mostly though there was alot of cat hair in the unit that was very hard to remove from around the gears and optics. The unit now works again so all I need is the DVD anyway. I think my cd changer was too close to the floor and was not a good idea.
