    I'm a novice so forgive me ahead of time. I got a great deal on a Panasonic RP-91 DVD, but after reading this forum I think may have wasted some money. I have a Sony KV36FV27 on layaway but am going to step down to the KV36FS13 because it has the features I want and is a little cheaper. Regardless of which of these T.V.'s I buy, the RP-61 seems to be a much better deal. Should I buy the RP-61 or stay with the RP-91?? I have not actually got any of this stuff at home yet, but the RP-91 is on the way. I can return it with no problem. JandR has the RP-61 at $270, but is out of stock at the moment. Here is my revised potential system. Thanks for helping a newbie!!

    Sony KV36FS13 or KV36FV27 Wega T.V.
    Onkyo TX-DS696 Receiver
    Energy Encore Speaker System
    Panasonic RP-91 or RP-61??

    Check the other threads, but in summary (thanks guys!):
    1) The RP-91 has both optical out and coax out.
    2) The RP-91 will allow screen scaling in progressive mode... very useful for 4:3 movies on widescreen TVs that lock into full stretched mode when in progressive mode.
    There a bunch of other feature differences, but these two were the deal makers for me.

    I'd keep the 91 in case your system is upgraded in the future...
