Many people trash on the fact that the JVCs derive their interlaced picture from the progressive. I will have an interlaced TV for some time before I will be able to upgrade to a digital TV. I also plan on having this player for 2-4 years, in which time I would imagine getting a digital TV. Any recommendations? Also, I have been looking at a 3 or 4 year extended warranty for the player. At Ecost, the warranty is $70 for 3 years in addition to the manufacturer's warranty. At Etronics, it's $50 for 4 years, but looks less inclusive than the Ecost one. Finally, what EXACTLY is the difference in buying a unit (whatever it might be) from an authorized dealer relative to not? Is the manufacturer's warranty void or something?
