Whether your living room is currently home to an HDTV or you're merely thinking of "someday," the DVD-P241 stands ready to deliver the full potential of your DVDs. Progressive scanning, referred to as 480p for the number of horizontal lines that compose the video image, creates a picture using twice the scan lines of a conventional DVD picture, giving you higher resolution and sharper images while eliminating nearly all motion artifacts.
The DVD-P241 also performs 3:2 pulldown. DVD mastering introduces a common distortion when adjusting 24-frames-per-second movies to 30 fps video; 3:2 pulldown digitally corrects this distortion, removing the redundant information to display a film-frame-accurate picture. Another handy feature is the player's EZ View letterbox eliminator, which lets you enjoy full-screen pictures on 4:3 aspect-ratio TVs--even when you're watching widescreen DVDs.
A set of left/right analog-audio outputs channel audio to Dolby Pro Logic receivers and stereo televisions. Both Dolby Digital and DTS 5.1-channel surround-sound signals can be routed through the player's digital-audio output for direct connection to a full-featured audio/video receiver. Composite- and S-video outputs bring compatibility with nearly any television.

This Samsung player seems to be just the ticket. It's got a few more bells and whistles than you'd think in a player for around $50 bucks indlucing the EZ view letter box eliminator for small screen TVs, distortion reduction, and can play MP3's and Kodak picture CDs.
But I mainly got it because it's easy to use and cheap so if my young one does anything to it it's easily replaceable. Not a machine for your high-end TV but certainly capable of doing the job.
(14") television, the EZ View Letterbox elimination option is
a real life saver. EZ View gives me the option of eliminating
letterboxing by expanding the center of the image and cropping
the sides, which is basically how Widescreen (16:9 ratio) movies
are "panned and scanned" to fit into a Fullframe (4:3 ratio)
television screen. This option makes it easier to view the
center of action in movies that don't have a Fullframe version
available. In particular, this feature made it possible to
properly view some of my favorite movies that are only avail-
able in a 2:35 ratio, such as Tora! Tora! Tora!, Zulu and The
Thin Red Line, without the image getting so compressed as to
be unviewable. I thank Samsung for giving us the ability to
make the trade off ourselves between image compression and
cropping off the sides of the movie.
Overall, an inexpensive namebrand dvd player which has performed consistently (as had my other samsung products). I would recommend this product.
The low price and high performance makes this a true bargain.
Good job Samsung!!! Thank You Amazon for great service as well.
Video Upconversion 720p/1080i - HDMI can support uncompressed digital video up to HDTV level resolution. Thus, the player makes use of this conduit by up-converting the standard DVD picture resolution to nearly HDTV-quality with output resolutions of 720p or 1080i. This makes a DVD player with an HDMI? connection the perfect match for today's digital televisions. I give 4 out of 5,I just don't understand the HDTV Title for this Unit for advertising. I guess samsung is using progressive scan to target HDTV customers and telling them it's helping the picture out to look better on HDTVs.
Got it home and set up was easy.I placed Harry Potter PoA and it started Buzzing (loudly)
then it told me check disk so i got a new cd and got the same massage.
Back it go's today !!!!!
