Here's a couple of photo's (excuse the quality) showing a DVD pattern upscaled by the lx91 (professional mode) and the same pattern scaled outside the player for comparision.
#2 is outside the player, correct? It does look worse than #1. These crushed whites/light colors are annoying to me; I've noticed similar things coming from my cable box; even my EDGE processor can't save it. And it's also evident in a Samsung 1080PD feeding the TV (PRO-111) directly.
I'd hate to think it's the TV; it must be either the source material or the players. All the more important to get somewhere I can put a DVD (probably the Yes DVD mentioned earlier) into a player and see what happens. This could go a long way toward determining which player (if any) I get and advance my research significantly.
