Miata, I agree with you,

It sounds like the BH100 is about as advanced as any player on the market for display support with 1080p 24fps. Again, I will skip over a 1080p 0fps only display:-(
First off, the play back or regular dvd's is great. I have watched a few and have been very pleased with the players own scaling to 1080i(using the component outs no hdmi on my Marquee 8000 yet) and having the lumagen HDQ pass through although with the lumagen doing the scaling and the LG outputting 480i looked noticeably better. The fith element looked as good witht he lumagen doing the scaling compared to the Blu ray disc through the lumagen at 1080i( i hear the transfer of the 5th E on blu-ray is not that great and i agree).
Stargate looked great on BD!!!! And the analog out puts for the audio was very involving and had great clarity. Apperently the internal audio decoding is top notch! This was fed into my Adcom 830's analog inputs and i went back and forth between the coax out of the LG. both had great sound.
My suggestion Miata is to go out a audition one for your self. if you dont like it take it back liek other on this thread have...for me i love it and will keep it! Just waiting for Moome to make some more hdmi cards for my Marquee 8000 so i can see what 1080p can do! butt he component out is also very good.
Love this new crt addiction i have!
