    I'm willing to spend up to $300 on an upconverting DVD player.

    I have a Panasonic PT-56DLX75 56" DLP and a Yamaha RX-V800 AV Receiver (4-5 years old).

    I've heard good things about the Panasonic DVD-S97S and the Oppo DV971H.

    Any recommendations for the equipment I have?

    Oh yeah...what is "macro-blocking", and in what situations would this occur?

    Have you at least tried to send the display 480i via component connection?


    These modern displays usually have some sophisticated video prcoessing and scalling for such an input, often I find it ends up being best overall.
