Thanks Arad for the answer.
Here is a follow up question. maybe you can point me to the right place for an answer.
If the Faroudja DCDi video processor is superior to sony's XBR built-in video processor, would you recommend the purchase of an external video processor, then couple that with a similar sony lcd, but without the video processor (ie. the non-xbr line?). I have been pondering the need for a video processor to improve the image quality from the cable provider. But most of the setups i have read about is for a front projector.
