I've got several questions so please bear with me. Santa was very good to me this year. In the form of a 51" Hitachi HD RPTV. My oldest son and his wife bought me a DVD player (my first one) and here (I think) is where my questions/troubles begin. It's an off brand progressive scan model (Memorex). I started out using the progressive scan and found that I couldn't obtain acceptable results with dark scenes. No matter what I did to the video controls of the TV you couldn't see any detail in dark scenes. Thinking it was a TV calibration problem (which I've read is something you should do anyway) I've scheduled a professional to come out and do that. Well, I tryed the player without PS and now those scenes are fine. As a matter of fact the overall quality of all playback seems better. What's the problem with the PS mode? Will a professional calibration fix that or is it the quality (or lack thereof)of the DVD player?
