Sorry for the mix-up. I did a quick search of all the normal places and couldn't find much of anything either.

The link below is the best review/AD I could find.

http://www.consumerguide.com/index.c...w/product20582

However, from the product description this TV doesn't seem to support progressive scan DVD on the component inputs. The internals of the TV will convert interlaced to progressive for display, but the inputs on the TV are not listed as accepting progressive signals. This is a feature the marketing department would certainly be pushing if it were available...

I have a JVC D series TV which is a good standard def TV that can provide an excellent NTSC picture. If the F series is anything like the D series, the the picture will be as good as interlaced can get, but not quite progressive DVD quality.

It seems that in order to get progressive scan in the JVC I'Art series you have to go all the way up to the AV-36P902. This is a HDTV with built in tuner, HDCP capable DVI connectors, etc... There are some places selling this set for right around $2000 which is not that much more than the non HD version, but not the best best bang for the buck in direct view HD.

The 38" 16x9 RCA is the best bang for the buck in direct view HD if you can live with it's imperfections.

Thanks for the reply . I read a similar review but for the 32in I'Art :)

Well I've looked at HD "ready" tv's & the price $1800+ for a decent Sony 32" & another $300.-$500 for a HDTV tuner is'nt worth it for me right now . The HDTV hype is there but the viewing material is not . I suppose I'm going to wait 3-5 yrs. for the "STANDARDS" to find thier place & material to be broadcasting in more than just a few channels at "certain" times .

So I'm moving up a small notch from my Zenith 57" reg rear projection tv to the JVC 36" I'art . Smaller picture but alot better for the new size room it's going into :)
