    I am currently running a Panasonic A-120 DVD player connected to a 32" GAOO by component inputs. Would there be a noticeable picture improvement if I switched to a progressive scan player? Any comments?

    Does your 32-inch television accept progressive signals? Just because it has component video inputs does not mean that it can handle progressive video signals. Unless it is a "HD-ready" set, chances are it does not. If your TV cannot accept a 480p progressive video signal, than upgrading to a progressive scan DVD player will not provide any picture improvement over a standard interlaced-only player.

    Thanks for the information, Scott. I've emailed Panasonic for the details.

    If you had one, you would know. 32" HDTV ready would set you back $1600-1700 USD. Unless, you spent that kind of money (or you got a spectacular deal) it is not a HDTV capable set.
