I am currently in the proceess of upgrading my home theater. I have recently purchased the newly released Sony HiScan/HD KV-36HS420. This is my first HD set which I'm sure will be an improvement over my 6 year old 32" RCA. I currently have an non-progressive scan RCA DVD which does have composite video outs(red,green,blue) however I have not been able to utilize them since the TV didn't have composite inputs. With the new sony I will at least be able to use the composite cables which I know will make some improvement along with the fact this TV is MUCH better. However, I am unfamilar with progressive scan DVD's and do not know what makes them better and how much of an improvement they will make. Also are there any new DVD technologies on the way? Would I better off to wait a while? I heard that the current DVD players are not Hi-def but there are some Hi-def DVD players on the way even though not all DVD's are filmed in Hi-def. Any advice would be appreciated.
