Many dealers are telling customer to buy a progressive player because they will get a much better picture. But they usually sell them with a 4:3 ratio screen. I think that the gain you get by using a progressive player is much less that the loss you have when formating an anamorphic dvd to 4:3 viewing via the player. I think the way to go is 16:9 rptv first then go progressive. What do you think ? ------------------ "My god, it`s full of stars!"
