you have had no hdmi handshake issues?
you don't see any green push?
and you believe the oppo deinterlaces and scales better than the XBR2?
just wondering because i have been considering the oppo981 but haven't seen many reports of anyone using it with our sets.
i currently use a Denon DVD-900. it is progressive but about 8 years old. the picture looks real good but i wonder how much better the oppo would be.
here the specs on my denon:
