Can someone please tell a newbie how do you get a 720p capable display (which I believe this Pioneer 4330HD is) to reach this level? I just installed a new SONY 999ES DVD player, set it to progressive and used the component cables. The display is set to input 1 and the best I can get is 480p.

Your plasma senses the input signals and automatically scale up or down the range from 1080i to 480i. Almost all current DVD players have 480i or 480p output. Some of the newest one like Bravo is capable of 720p with DVI connection. The next generation of DVD players uses a blue laser and will likely be 720p or better if the issue of privacy can be settled between movie studios and DVD player manufacturers by using the DVI-HDCP format. The free transfer of CD quality songs via Internet is causing a big drop in sales in the recording industry. The studio bosses are very worried about the same happenings to the movie industry and are obviously reluctant to move forward quickly with higher resolution recording and displaying technology.

DVI (Digital Video Interface) output offers a pure digital video signal from DVD (such as V Inc.'s Bravo D1 www.vinc.us ) or HD set top to display without any analog conversion. The benefit of this direct digital connection is a picture free from the video noise and artifacts that are the result of D/A conversion. For digital fixed pixel projectors and TVs such as plasma, LCD, DLP, DILA and LCoS, this direct digital signal path allows the Bravo D1 to select a "1:1 Pixel Mapping" DVI output resolution that can exactly match that of the display's native resolution. SOUND & VISION magazine's technical editor, David Ranada, called the resultant DVD/DVI picture quality from the Bravo D1 when displayed on a fixed pixel display "Reference-quality." http://www.soundandvisionmag.com/art...&page_number=1
