Hi, I am not sure if it the right place to ask this, but anyway. Is the content on DVD encoded progressive or interlace?. Which of the following statement is true? Statement 1: if the content on DVD is progressive, that mean regular DVD player convert the image to interlace to play on regular tv. Statement 2: if the content on DVD is interlace, that mean the opposite; progressive DVD player have an internal line doubler to output a progressive image (to a progressive display). My dilemna is that I have a regular DVD player and I have a HDTV (with an internal line double of course). If statement 1 is true, buying a progressive DVD player will be worth it. If statement 2 is true, then I will keep my trusty 5 years old Panasonic A100 until it dies.
