Big price difference on these 2 progressive scan units, $300.00 difference. Will the RP62 be sufficient for my new Panny PT47wx49? What is the main difference between these 2 units that a newbie would notice?

I'm pretty sure the biggest difference is DVD-Audio...but I could be wrong.

Does anyone know if the RP62 will play DVD-RAM discs? The RP91 will, which is why I've wanted one. I don't yet have a progressive display, but I do make DVD-RAM and DVD-R recordings with the DMR-E20.

I understand more of the decks in the Panasonic line will offer DVD-RAM playback capability. I just don't know which ones.

I saw this posted over at Avs.Forum a few weeks ago. I am also waiting for one these Panasonic dvd players to come out so I make use of them playing dvd-ram.

Ron, you might be right, but I seem to recall that a Crutchfield description of the RP91's capabilities also didn't mention DVD-RAM playback. And I know that deck plays them.

I'll keep a watchful eye on the new Panasonic decks.

I am also interested in these two players. I have read a lot of good things about the RP-91 but I really don't want to spend $500 on a DVD player right now. I am mainly interested in progressive scan picture quality for Film based DVDs. Besides the scaling feature and DVD-A is there any reason to choose the RP-91 over the RP-62. From what I have read about the two chipsets I would think that the RP-62 would have better progressive scan picture quality? Would the RP-62 fit the bill for me? I don't care about DVD-A or auto scaling, I just want the best picture quality for film based DVD's. My TV is a mits 65-908.
