    Hi
    I have a Sanyo PLV-Z1 with a Panasonic DVD-RV80.This DVD player have Interlace component output.
    Somebody told me that the Z1 have a built in processor that transform the interlace signal to a progressif one.

    My question is: Will I get better picture with a progressive DVD player?

    Happy Holidays,

    PS is it true that the Z1 have a built in line doubler?????

    In most cases, the progressive capabilities of the DVD player outdoes that of the projector or TV but in a few instances, you will see better PQ when viewed with the dvd player in interlaced mode.

    That said, I will try moving this to audio/video sources where the subject of "doubling" has been discussed quite thouroughly.

    With the Z1, yes the player will get better with a progressive player, as the line doubler in it would not be as good as one in a DVD player.

    Some newer projectors have more specialized chips in them, Such as DCDi from Faroudja (X1), and I beleieve the Z2 has the HDCP chip to do its deinterlacing (not sure if hte Z1 has it)...

    But yeah, a good quality Progressive Scan player will pump a better picture into your projector
