    Guys and Gals,

    Is it really worth my dough to get a progressive scan DVD player if I don't have HDTV? I am not planning on replacing the RPTV with HD for a few years, so my thoughts were to just get a nice DVD player for under 200$ and replace it with a PS DVD when the TV goes bye bye.......

    Also, do I need the DTS DD and all the other decoders on the DVD player if I have it on my recvr? Or is this necessary for me to convey the data accurately to the recvr?

    Thanks for the help, my brain is swelling from the stuff I learn here everyday!

    Matt

    Michael,

    Thanks for the quick reply and advice, from what it sounds like, my thinking was correct, so I can keep it in budget and still get a good DVD player for my current needs!

    Thanks!

    Matt

    Save your money and get a HD-DVD player in a few years so you can take advantage of that on your new HDTV.
