    welcome to HTF product marketing! since there are so many threads on this topic, but debate current released boxes, i thought this might be fun for all.
    the ultimate progressive DVD player if released today would have:

    SACD
    CD text
    DVD text
    coax out
    optical out
    progressive scan
    weigh over 20 lbs.
    BLACK in colour
    .....please add on. this list is by no means finishedi have to go to a meeting.
    cheers,
    Gareth

    Also, add:
    zooming for 4x3 material to display on 16x9 hardware, that includes windowboxing 4x3 in 16x9 (wizard of oz) while preserving full 720 horizontal resolution of 4x3 window area, a "regular" zoom for 4x3 lbxed material to convert it to 16x9 (so far panny 91 has these)...
    and...
    a 1.66:1 zoom for 4x3 lbxed 1.66:1 titles that only paritally zooms and partially windowboxes.
    The internal scaler would allow various custom output rates and resolutions. In addition to 480I/P 60 fps would be 540 progressive, 720 x 1280, 1920 x 1080 or 960 progressive as well. Rates of 50 hz and 72 hz would be possible (the latter avoiding 3-2 judder for projectors that can do 72). It would use the Sage chip for deinterlacing 480I video material. It would also allow any custom output resolution to match with digital projectors.
    All this great scaling would be available to outboard analog video sources too...the DVD player would have composite, S, and component video input so you could scale your DSS and laserdisc (and VHS too).
    The scaling algorithms would be software-upgradable.
    Oh...it would also have SDI (digital-video) output and be able to play PAL discs...
    ...and all discs from all regions via an after-market mod.

    It would also hold 5-7 disks and would also read MP3 Material
    as well as CD-R and CD-RW in general (with a dedicated CD
    Laser)
    and it would cost $300.00
    Ok now who's dreaming! [​IMG]
    I forgot to add that "when" it read MP3's it would also
    display the full I.D tags associated with the songs.

    Yes, these are bruises from fighting. Yes, I am comfortable with that. I am enlightened.

    Yeah, saw Lansonic, but I don't see that it can display information on a TV. That's something I really want and can get in other sources. I do like the large (and flexible) storage capacity.
