    For owners who use the 480p/960i DRC on you Sony, how well does it work? How does 480i via DVD scaled to 960i look? Does it work w/ 16:9 enhanced mode?
    Thanks!

    Chuck...I have an XBR400 set. I use the 960i option with DVD sources via component video. In my opinion it did not make a huge difference over the 480p setting but I think, at least on DVD, it added a bit of extra depth to the picture. I experimented with cable and laserdisk but left a pic mode set to 480p for those other sources. I am currently using a Sony 7700 DVD player. In my opinion the DRC does almost as good a job on DVD's as a progressive scan DVD player 90% of the time. Only with problem disks like Titanic will you see alot of flicker and jaggies...of coarse with a progressive player you loose the cool auto 16:9 detect...which is awesome.
