Hi folks. I have a Pioneer Elite 510HD (53" 16:9 HDTV capable TV with built in high quality deinterlacer). I've been watching DVD movies off a Toshiba 2109 for over a year and mostly very satisfied. However, like most things, the more time I spend with it the more I've noticed the limitations of the player and the TV. BAAAAAD chroma (red) bug on the Toshiba DVD player. And the TV sometimes doesn't do the right thing deinterlacing and pull down, resulting in some 'zippers' or motion artifacts, or jaggies, or doubled bits of lines. Sooooo, with that said, I've been seeking out a progressive DVD player to see if it looks any better. After reading about the SAGE/Faroudja chip I knew I had to try a player with that in it, and amazingly the RP56 does. I paid $212 for the player at Best Buy. I have Vampire (apparently good) component video interconnects. I watched some of The Matrix first. Couldn't tell any difference between progressive and non-progressive. Hmmm... After reading about flicker reports, I watched Toy Story 1, I think it's chapter 4 which has been mentioned on that other site's tests, where the cowboy is standing by a cylinder with a red top - the red top FLICKERS noticeably in progressive out from the player, but NOT in non-progressive. Hmmm.... On my Toshiba, Toy Story 2's opening action sequence shows the chroma bug horribly in the credits (big red area with the 'Toy Story 2' title) and in Zurg's control panel. On the RP56 - NO CHROMA PROBLEM AT ALL - looks SPECTACULAR. Now on to my all time favorite movie, 2001 (the new DVD pressing, finally in anamorphic). With the Toshiba, a number of scenes, particular the ones of slow crawls of HUGE moonshots looked jaggy and ragged when my otherwise excellent Pioneer Elite was trying to upconvert my Toshiba's 480i signal. With the RP56 however, this looks ABSOLUTELY SPECTACULAR!!!!! AWESOME, FANTASTIC, whatever... it's truly incredible. Last, I could swear the sound is better, but maybe that's my imagination. I am connected with optical on the RP56 vs. digital coax for the Toshiba. Well I'm going to play with it some more, but I thought this info might be useful to others here. Overall I'm definitely impressed so far.
