If msft were smart (and they are), you would buy one dvd kit to activate dvd, and then, in a few months, they would announce a new kit that would allow dvd to be played AND enable the prog scan (getting a lot of people to pay twice for the dvd kit).

The thing is, he works as part of Directplay, not the hardware team. I work in a brick company in IT, does that mean Im an expert on bricks because of my vicinity to the plant? I think not.

I'd like to point out that the ability for XBox to display progressive output for games (computer programs) that are loaded from DVDROM media is lot different than being able to read a DVD-video title and convert it to progressive on the fly. Really, truly, a lot different.
It's real easy for me to imagine the "games can display in progressive mode" ability being taken out of context and resulting in a "progressive DVD playback" rumour. I wouldn't place too much faith in progressive DVD playback until it can be positively verified.
