A local dealer has a few Panasonic TAU CT-36HX40 in stock which he is selling for $1400. I have been considering either a WEGA 32" FV or XBR, but the 36" Panasonic for $200 more than the FV is tempting. The primary feature I would like to get is auto-anamorphic compression. I use standard cable so HD is not in my immediate future. My Sony DVD player is not progressive scan. I am upgrading a 10-year-old 32" Sony "S" series (vertically flat). I have been doing some research on the forum and elsewhere. Sounds like there were some geometry problems on the early HX40's, as well as a tilt problem. I am concerned about that. As for features, the HX40 has a line doubler but it's not a deinteracer (no reverse 3:2 pulldown). It is my understanding that if I upgrade to a progressive scan DVD player, I won't need this anyway. Also, I have read some comments that the Panasonic auto-detect for vertical compression doesn't work with all DVD players. Anyone have any experience with this? The price is tempting, but not if I'm just going to be buying a headache. Opinions?
