    I just got this response back from Panasonic:
    Dear Mr. Dinan,
    Thank you for your patience, we have received the information on the chip set used with the DVD-RP56. DVD-RP56 uses a Sage/Faroudja IC (part number FLI2200), to process the digital video and output a progressive Y Pb Pr component video. The following link has further information:

    Do you know if the RP56 does SACD milti channel, and does it exhibit the Chroma Bug?
    Thanks,

    While it might not seem so, there is a very logical reason the 56 doesn't use the same chip as the 91. Think of the 61 and 71.

    I'm sorry, I'm well out of the loop. What's the advantage of this?

    The RP-56 does not play SACD nor DVD-A
    The RP-56 does not show chroma bug
    The RP-56 ppicture quality is much better compared to the Sony 700 (both tested on Samsung TSK-3092WF EDTV)
    my 2 cents

    Does this mean Sony is not licensing SACD as yet or at all? It seems they must for it to succeed.

    None of the Panasonics have the chroma bug.
    The Sage chip is the better de-interlacer, but it can't scale like the RP91's Genesis chip. So it's partly a question of feature sets.
