I've followed and searched a bunch of threads, but can't seem to find out if anyone has compared a good progressive player (e.g., Denon 1600, Panasonic XP30, etc.) versus a DVI player (Bravo, HD931, etc.) using an ED display. It seems like most (if not all) of the comparisions are done, rightfully so, using an HD display that can take full advantage of the upconverted material via DVI.


So, my basic question is: Is there really something to the idea that a good progressive player may be better suited to a 480p display (than a DVI, which must upconvert 480 to 1080/720 only to downconvert back to 480)?


I'll add to this by saying that, at least with an HD cable box, I think that 1080/720 material looks immeasurably better than 480p material. Granted, in the case of the cable box there is no upconversion as there would be with a DVD (right?). So, is it realistic to expect the same dramatic improvement for DVD's via a DVI connection, or is the benefit lost in the multiple image conversions?


I'm just curious to hear people's opinions and/or experiences with this.


Thanks.


Scott
