I have a toshiba 50h81 coming next week and was looking for the perfect progressive dvd player to hook up to it. I have been reading a lot of threads regarding the topic. It seems to be the consensus that panasonics are superior simply for the fact that they don't contain the dreaded "chroma bug." I don't want anything pulsating or shimmering on our brand new tv! I was going to buy either the rp56 or the rp91, but basically I needed to "think out loud". I am also trying to justify spending $499 vs $229. First off, does the rp56 have the chroma bug or not? Most places I read say it does not, but a few threads around here have said that it does have it. I wonder if they just have their facts backwards? Settle it once and for all, does the rp56 have the chroma bug? From what I have gathered, it appears that the best reason for owning a rp91 is it's ability to properly scale non-anamorphic material. This is a great feature, but if I purchased the rp56 all I would need to do is change video modes on the 50h81 correct? Would that fix the problem with the black bars? And I'm sure it all depends upon the aspect ratio of the material I'm viewing. On the dvd Fantasia 2000 the intro appears full screen on my old 27" tv, but when the main program starts it switches to widescreen version. Then black bars appear. How does that intro appear on a 16x9 tv? Is it 4:3 or does it appear full screen? If I had rp56 would I need to flip viewing modes on the 50h81 for the intro? If I had rp91 it would all be done automatically? What does the rp91 do with "full screen" material? I own The Wizard of OZ and 102 Dalmations that are 4:3 fullscreen versions. The rp56 has better de-interlacer chip in it. Is this going to be an issue for me since I watch mostly dvd's? The rp56 has only optical out and not a digital coax output? Is a 3' monster optical cable good enough or is there a need for a "beefier" optical cable? I already own a good digital coax cable. Right now I'm leaning towards the rp56 because I'm having a hard time finding the rp91 in stock anywhere. The $250 savings could always be used in other places. I'll probably be wanting one of these blue-laser dvd players when they come out so I'm leaning towards cheaper right now. Unless your thoughts and opinions persuade me otherwise... Please let me know what you all think! This is a great forum! PS- Is the Moulin Rouge dvd non-anamorphic? I didn't see it listed on the back!?
