I have a Samsung 1080p DLP TV and my understanding is that DVD players using a Faroudja chip cause macroblocking in these sets (in fact I have seen that first hand). As a result, many have recommended DVD players that do not use this chip when pairing it with this DLP set. Also, I've read a number of posts that recommend setting the DVD resolution at 480i and then letting the TV do all the upscaling. However, I believe that the TV also uses the Faroudja chip and therefore wouldn't this type of setup be likely to cause more macroblocking than setting the DVD player at 1080i and then just let the TV bring that to 1080p?


BTW - if I am right, I would expect that for the same reason I would also expect to see some macroblocking when watching an SD television channel on this TV (which I have seen).

Go with a non-Faroudja player, such as Pioneer 59ai or Onkyo SP1000 at the high end, or Sony S975 at the lower end. Send a 720p signal to the DLP over HDMI, and you will be fine, without any MB.
