i was at a hi-fi buys yesterday looking at some 16:9 tube's, when i came across the Panasonic 16:9 34" which i almost bought (didn't, but that's another story). anyway, they had Phantom Menace playing through a progressive feed. I finally saw unequivically what people have been talking about - horrible halos, EVERYWHERE. Just to make sure it wasn't the tv, i asked if i could watch another dvd...they put in Starship Troopers, and it looked fabulous. Tried a few more scenes from the Phantom Menace dvd and it just didn't look clear. Why did they have to ruin this dvd with so much EE? I'm getting a 16:9 delivered tuesday and hope not too many dvd's get ruined by EE with a bigger display than i'm used to (27", going to 38" 16:9).
