I have been looking at HD monitors for our family room and recently bought a Sony 30" widescreen for another room and the majority of these sets upconvert ANY source to 720p. That's what they say. DVD players with progressive scan provide a 480p signal. So, does the fact that these TV's now upconvert any signal to 720p make progressive scan insignificant? I have to say that through this Sony set VHS looks as good as I have ever seen it, so the upconverting was work to improve the picture a great deal. Is it 720p, I couldn't tell you. So do you think that with my DVD which has progressive scan will the picture be the same with an upconverted composite video signal compared to using progressive scan and component video?
