I desperately need some opinions and here is why. I recently bought a Panasonic 51HX41 HDtv (I'm a sucker for the 0% interest) after watching a Toshiba 50" rear projection for a few years. I already had a JVC SA70BK DVD-Audio / Progresive scan player which I was watching through s-video since the old tv had no component. The JVC is producing green and blue snow through the compononet in both progressive and interlaced modes on the new tv. I switched cables, tv inputs, electrical outlets, surge protector, and just about everything else. I hooked our bedroon Pioneer player, through the component, to the new set and it produced no snow at all. I will be returning the JVC player today. Here is the question : Do you guys think the Panasonic RP56 would be a good progressive scan dvd choice in the under $300.00 range? A good picture is more important than DVD-Audio at this point as I already have an SACD player which I prefer anyway. I am just about ready to give up, as we have had a run of real bad luck with players lately. Please help me.
