thanks dr john for the good info. i'll keep that compatibility info in mind, and will let you know if i end up trying an EP 4 hr test disc on the 985.
on your other topic, I've had HDTV and progressive scan players for a few years, and although this will sound odd, a very good non-progressive scan, component output dvd player (e.g. panasaonic a-7), can look qualitatively better than the component outs of an early first gen progressive scan dvd player (e.g. toshiba 5109), IF the tv has a good line doubler.
Of course the 5109 had some now known issues, but you may want to try both outputs if your set's line doubling is exceptionally good.
