    Well, I purchased a Toshiba 51H83 RPTV and connected it to my Toshiba SD-2900 non progressive scan DVD player using some custom made(high end)component cables into the HD-1 input of the RPTV. I am very pleased with the resulting playback image.

    Would it be noticably better if I upgraded to the SD-3800 Progressive Scan player and 480P?

    If you're pleased with the picture upgrading to a prog-scan machine is not high priority. But, for all you know, the SD-3800 might offer an improvement. The consensus is that the deinterlacing circuitry on good progressive-scan machines does the job better than the internal line doublers on most HD-capable displays. But the sets' internal doublers keep improving.

    My money would go to a prog-scan machine, though.
