Right. A decent progressive scan DVD player will look noticeably better on a pioneer plasma (since the internal de-interlacer is not that great) but probably won't make as much difference on a Panny and perhaps will make very little difference on a Fujitsu. Maybe the panny and Fujitsu owners can comment (I've got a pioneer).

I've got a Panny plasma and a Panny DVD player. The DVD player has a progressive button. When I hit it, the colors get very slightly "smoother".


It's a really minor difference that you have to really be looking for to see.

i've got a fuji P50 and a denon dvd-4800.


the only real difference i noticed was that enabling the progressive scan function on the dvd player eliminated the jaggies i could see during Attack of the Clones as the camera panned into the diner at the beginning of the movie. the first time i noticed them was in that scene, and i did no real further experimentation.


since there's no obvious negative effect to using the player's progressive mode, and at least that one positive effect, i just leave it on.
