Hi everyone ! This is my first post here, after having read many posts concerning a great many issues/categories. I've been in the market for a dvd player, and after seeing how many positive reviews and remarks were made about the Panasonic RP 82, I was just about convinced to take the plunge. Unfortunately yet fortunately (I'll explain) all of the stores I've gone to have claimed that it's been discontinued..though I still can get it online and at this one side place on Canal Street in NYC. (where I reside) Anyway, I've decided that I really have no use for a progressive scan player since I don't have a HDTV, nor do I plan on getting one anytime soon. I'm pretty happy with my cinema series Toshiba. Here's my question: Which Panasonic model most closely resembles the RP 82 but with no Prog scan ? Does it have a non prog scan sibling ? Thanks, and glad to be aboard ! D.R.B.
