    Hello,
    is there an inexpensive progressive scan DVD player that does not have visual abberations such as the chroma or flicker bug? If not, what are the less expensive DVD players which do not have these problem?

    The more I read the more confused I get.

    Sincerely,

    -Henrik

    It depends on your definition of inexpensive.

    The Denon 1600, with CCS off firmware would be in that category, but it's list price is US$550. I don't know if you'd consider that "inexpensive" or not.

    Denon also announced a US$329 player which might qualify as well. I don't know the model # on that player. Nor have I heard specifics on it.

    JVCs progressive scan players are (so far) chroma bug free, but their deinterlacing leaves something to be desired.


    Regards,

    I've read the Panny 82 doesn't have the chroma bug. The only negative of it is the no non anamorphic zoom function...Which probably isn't a big deal for most people anyway...
