    My KV-32HS20 HDTV 4:3 TV arrived almost a week ago. I've calibrated it quickly with VE and so far I am very happy with the picture.
    Even though I am more than versed with anamorphic and its virtues, I had never actually seen it action prior to getting my new TV. All I can say is wow!! I've done some A/B tests and I can't believe the difference. And that's without a progressive scan DVD player (yet [​IMG] ) - but I think the HS20 upconverts to 960i right? The auto 16:9 compression is a very nice feature too.
    I was behind "enhanced for widescreen" before, now I'm going to be fanatical about it.
    What's really great is that my wife asked me tonight if they do "big screen flat TVs." What she really means is do they do a RPTV equivalent - read HDTV RPTV. Of course I explained "they do" and widescreen to boot. Seems like I won't be waiting too long to upgrade the monitor in our dedicated HT room [​IMG]

    Welcome to the "club". And, getting a progressive scan player should enhance the picture even further. It should stabilize it and eliminate even more artifacts.

    Bruce,

    Yep. I believe that progressive scan players do the 3:2 pulldown that my non-XBR Sony lacks....
