Hello everyone, Please excuse my ignorance in this forum... I only recently caught the home theater bug in May of this year when I bought a Panasonic DVD-RV31, mainly to listen to CDs with MP3s on them. Well, when I saw the picture quality of DVD movies, I knew I had to upgrade my 9-inch Sony! So please be patient with me as I am not yet quite up to speed on all the technical jargon. Anyway, I am planning to upgrade my Sony KV-36FV27 (which I've owned for less than a week) to a KV-36XBR450. I just saw both of these side-by-side today, and the difference was amazing. They were both hooked up via plain old composite outputs (I peeked in the back) and the DVD player was a standard, interlaced (ie., non-progressive) inexpensive ($200) JVC model. Since no salespeople were around, I adjusted both sets to the same settings for a fair comparison. The movie that was playing was MIB, and it was in 4:3 Pan and Scan mode. Anyway, the XBR450 was MUCH smoother and filmlike than the FV27, which had visible scan lines. I attribute this improvement to the built-in DRC on the XBR450. I then flicked both sets to the same analog cable TV channel, and the XBR450 was by far smoother. Anyway, the questions I want to ask are: 1) Since the 36XBR450 has DRC and 3:2 pulldown, would it be redundant to get a progressive-scan DVD player, such as Sony's DVP-NS700P, which also has 3:2 pulldown? I'm pretty sure my non-progressive scan Panasonic DVD player will give me the same results as the el cheapo JVC, so why should I spend more money to get a progressive scan DVD player? Would a progressive scan player give me even better results than what I saw? Like I said above, the cheap, interlaced JVC player hooked up to the 36XBR450 via the plain, ubquitous composite connectors yielded VERY pleasing smooth and filmlike images, virtually eliminating scan lines from only about 6 feet away. 2) Some people have mentioned that the Sony DVD-NS700P has the "chroma bug". I am red-green color-blind, so is this something I should be concerned about? If enough of you say that I should get a progressive player to go with the XBR450, then this DVD player is the one I would get. Anyway, thanks in advance for any advice or opinions you can give me!
