I'm a Panasonic DVD player fan and owned 3 Pan players before I bought the RP56 because it has progressive scan. Then when I was doing the connection, I realize I no longer have the choice between the coaxial or the digital connection. So dawn it, I had to go out and spend an extra $30. What gives? Did Panasonic decided that the digital connection is better? I can't tell the difference (yet) but was it too much to give me the choice? Now I have a nice coaxial connection just sitting at home. I think this is the first time I upgrade but end up with less options.
