I tried to search the relevant brain dumps but they were huge and i didnt get a definitive answer.


I have a 50PX50U panasonic plasma and need a new dvd player. I am going to sit on the hd/bluray sidelines for now so im looking for an upconverting player. I heard that the macro blocking issue could be bad with a panny plasma. We watch a lot of Disney animated around here. Im torn between the 970hd and the 981 from oppo.


Does anyone have either of these players with a 50u plasma?


Is macroblocking a problem with this combo (50px50u and 980oppo)?


Is there another player i should consider?


Other thoughts/opinions?


Thanks

Macroblocking is often reported by plasma owners when using Faroudja-chip players like the 981 and 971. Some people can make it work, others not.


The 970 is less risk in this regard.
