    Hey people bear with me a minute, please. I think I understand but would like clarification.

    I have a Toshiba 50" analog rptv. This being a "standard" TV it shows the picture in 480i format. True?
    It has one set of component inputs, what Toshiba calls ColorStream inputs.

    If I buy the Panny rp-82 or cp-72 it will output in 480i through the component outputs, again true?

    These players will also output in 480p. If I upgrade the TV sometime in the future, then I don't have to worry about the DVD player Again true?

    So the advantage to me with this player now would be a generally better player over my 3 yr old Toshiba 2800. Better picture quality using component vs s-video. Correct?

    Anything else I should know about this subject?

    The wife and daughters want to know what to get me for Christmas. A new DVD player is about it. This Panasonic sounds about right.

    Youve got it. The progressive scan DVD players also put out ordinary interlace video.

    But the better picture with component - only about 5%. Dont expect to even see it.
