    the description available for the rp62 shows a switch for progressive and interlaced scan...the rp82 which cost more, doesn't show this capability...does anyone know if it has if but it just doesn't show it in product descriptions? Thanks...

    Yes, the RP-82 does have this feature.

    I wouldn't waste too much time falling in love with the Panny RP82 - seems they are discontinued and no one can find one. Myself included.

    If anyone knows someone with RP82s in stock I'd like to know...

    Who out there has the RP-62?

    And how does that baby stack up in the Player Derby?

    I'm selling a brand new (sealed box) Panasonic RP-62 DVD player if anyone is interested. My asking price is $100 + shipping.

    Th RP-62, it seems, is going bye-bye as well. It's been on clearance at our Best Buy for a week.

    How do all these Panasonics compare in features?
    How do the 62, 67 and 82 compare? De-interlacing? MPEG decoders? Zooming?
    The 82 seems to be around still up in the great white north.
    We need an RP-82 in 5 disc with scaling/zooming [​IMG]

    We just got in the Panasonic DVD-S35K yesterday? Has anyone seen it? At $99, it looks like a steal!

    The CP-67 is a changer version of the RP-62. They both use the same MPEG decoder. The RP-82, CP-72, XP-30 and XP-50 all use the higher end Panasonic MPEG decoder used in the RP-91.
    I'm finishing up a review of the S35 player, but you can read some of the early information on it here: S35 Thread
    It's pretty good for $100, but its deinterlacing via the Panasonic all-in-one chip is nowhere near as good as the Sage chip-based players. The incremental zooming on this player is a great feature though.

    What the heck are the XP-30 and XP-50? Unlike the RP-82 and CP-72 I don't see those in Canada. Do they all use the far de-interlacer?

    You don't see them much around here anymore either. The XP-50 is essentially the same as the RP-82 (except it only has an optical output). The XP-30 is the same but without DVD-A and built-in DD and DTS decoders.

    None of these players have scaling or zooming (with the small exception of an expand mode for a 4:3 TV).

    What is replacing the RP-82 anyways? Was there ever a 5 disc version of that player?

    The CP-72 was the closest thing to a changer version of the RP-82, although some people have had some problems with them. There is no real replacement for the RP-82. Panasonic's new line are all using their all-in-one chip solution, and range from $99 to $149. Here's the lineup:
    DVD-S35
    Progressive scan, multi-format (DVD Video, DVD-RAM, CD, CD-R/RW, JPEG, MP3, WMA)
    $99.95
    DVD-S55
    Progressive scan, multi-format (all of the above plus DVD-Audio), digital re-master, monitor selector, HighMAT
    April 2003
    $129.95
    DVD-F65
    5-disc changer, progressive scan, multi-format (DVD Video, DVD-RAM, CD, CD-R/RW, MP3, WMA, HighMAT )
    April 2003
    $129.95
    DVD-F85
    5-disc changer, progressive scan, multi-format (DVD Video, DVD-Audio, DVD-RAM, CD, CD-R/RW, JPEG, MP3, WMA, HighMAT), digital re-master, monitor selector

    Why wasn't the 72 a 5 disc version of the 82? What was different between the two?
