Hi, in January 2000 I purchased what was sold to me as a HDTV "ready" Sony KP-53V80 rear projection TV. The set has performed wonderfully for the past three years. However now with the forward progress of technologies and a recent DVD purchase, I feel I've been left out in the cold. The problem is I wanted to order an HDTV set top receiver, but first I called SONY to ensure compatibility. I was then shocked when they told me the TV is in fact NOT HDTV ready and that the advertisement was referring to the component video connections offering a superior DVD signal back in 1999 (creation date of the TV). As such I refrained from the purchase.
Further, now I purchased a DVD player (Panasonic DVD-RP62S) with progressive scan technology and now there is another compatibility problem. The store that sold me the DVD player stated that if the TV is digital it should work. The TV has a Digital comb filter but when the DVD outputs 480P I see a double picture.
Is there anything I can do to make the TV work with the DVD on progressive scan output?
Please help, as I mentioned to Sony why isn't there some kind of (even purchased) migration path to newer technologies for these Big Screen, BIG Priced TV's?
