Here's hoping someone can explain this to me. I just retired to my father the Sony NSV-700P Prog. DVD player for the JVC XV-FA900 (mainly for the DVD Audio), I have this hooked to a sony KP51hw40 RPTV (HDTV Compat.). With that out of the way here we go. With the JVC on Interlaced and the TV on Progressive and or even the Cinematic setting (which I believe is 3:2 Pulldown film conversion mode) the picture is much sharper and less GRAINY than with the DVD outputting a Progresssive signal and the TV on either of these settings. Do my eyes and my mind deceive me or is this what everyone else sees. I have several Superbit(5th E., Dracula, Snatch) titles that I have even tried this on and my thought is that I didn't ever need a Progressive player to begin with. Are the TV's internal components that good or is the History of Psychedelics finally catching up with me. Thanks for listening and hopefully responding.
