    I own a Sony KP-46WT510 and an Onkyo DV-SP800 player. I have read on the
    DVD Benchmark tests that my player is not great on deinterlacing. It suffers from the chroma bug as seen here. When I switch my player to interlaced, the error disappears. So, as it stands, my TV exceeds my DVD player in this regard. Are there any other specific tests/movie scenes I should look at to see if my TV will serve to be a better de-interlacer than the DVD player (outside of chroma tests)?

    On a side note, when I switched to interlaced, the picture became darker and I needed to recalibrate.

    When you play a moview, switch the subtitles on. Look closely for shimmer on the subtitles in interlaced mode and see if it disappears in progressive mode.

    Look for step patterns on curved lines in 480i... that should turn smoother in 480p. Also, you may get interaction in checker patterns and images with lots of parallel lines close together in 480i and not 480p.
