    Looking for some opinions. Just bought an X1 a couple of weeks ago. I have an older Sony DVD player and was wondering if a progressive scan DVD player would be that much better? I currently have my hi-def cable box hooked up to the VGA input on the projector. If I go with a progressive scan I would have to get another component to VGA adapter and some sort of switcher to plug the two VGA's into one that would go to the projector.

    Any opinions on DVD players (or dvd/vcr/combo) and swithcers would be greatly appreciated.

    If your X1 has the Faroudja deinterlacing chip you may get a better picture using the S-Video from an interlaced player rather than component from a cheap player that uses a less advanced method for deinterlacing.

    With that said, color definition is best when sent through DVD's native siginal, which is component. You may or may not even notice it but I saw a smigen of difference from A/B tests to a CRT TV. A quality player would be best, but not inexpensive.
