Should I get a JVC 70bk with only an interlaced TV?

    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?

    Pete-

    I am no expert (really a newbie) but I can help a little I hope.

    I thought some DVD players dervied progressive output from interlaced output. I thought I read that this had to do with the way the data on the disc was decoded. Not sure on this, perhaps someone with more knowledge can comment?

    From what I have read on manufacturer's web sites the manufacturers warranty is VOID unless you buy from an authorized dealer. Many on this board and others have said that many un-authorized dealers sell "b" stock items. A B stock item is one usually manufactured in malaysia or other country, and that repairs require shipping to Japan or malaysia which would cost a fortune.
