Hi! I have a Sony 61" HS10 RPTV, and a Sony interlaced DVD player for about 8 month now. I have always been thinking IF and how much a progressive DVD player will enhance the picture quality. Why? my TV is not professionally calibrated, I did my best in it's service mode convergence, with the help of AVIA cross-hatch pattern. The lines are by no means comparable to direct view tv, but they look good from 6-8 feet (I have seating in about 8-ft). If a better DVD player - a progressive one, is feeding the HS10, will the TV display be more or less just about the same with the minimally optimized TV set? Also I found the picture quality depends a lot on the DVD disks. When I watch some DVDs with better video transfer, such as Toy Story, Antz etc, the picture is excellent, but the picture on many others are far from satisfactory. Will a progressive DVD player outputs better pictures with all the (good and not so good) DVDs? If I must have my TV professionally calibrated, wonder how soon it has to be calibrated again? I found my convergence via service menu drifted after a few months, and it at one time was completely off the mark, I had to do it from scratch. Each time I checked with the convergence settings, I found they are different from the record I wrote down from the last time. If it's professionally calibrated, I don't think I will ever touch it (tweak it) in fear screwing up the several hundred dollars investment. Now the second question. If a progressive DVD player positively enhances the pictures, then which model do you recommend? My impression is that a true 3:2 pull down is the way to go, and I heard line doubler iScan is a very good alternative. Of course budget is not unlimited, so please, no $3000 price tag top runners. I would like to spend somewhere in $400 range. I also can wait if the wait will let me buy today's $3000 technology in 12 months with $400-$500. I am talking the Silicon Image deinterlacing chip. Many thanks!
