    Sorry, if it's a already answered question, but I'd like to kown which 42'plasmas accept Pal progressive scan from a dvd player capable of that (ie, Tag, Arcam, Denon)?
    I'm planning buying the new 42' Phillips, but I'm afraid is doesn't accept that kind of signal, is it?
    Thanks.

    The Philips doesn't even accept NTSC progressive. It does have component inputs, but doesn't support progressive signals, alas.
    At least, that's what I've been told, so bare with me.

    The Pioneer 433MXE version accepts Pal prog.

    Hi, and thanks for your replies.
    I think I know, now, that the philips plasma accepts prog scan, after seeing a test in home cinema choice.
    But maybe I did't make myself clear: one thing is accepting a prog scan signal, other one is the plasma itself doing prog scan, and that I think it really doesn't.
    Do you know if I'm right, and what plasmas actually do prog scan, besides accepting the signal?

    I know the difference between accepting the signal and having a line-doubler or scaler (or whatever) in the screen itself.
    However, I'm almost positive that the Philips does NOT accept a progressive signal. Ask the dealer to be sure!

    Manuel,

    All plasma's with the exception of ALIS panelled units will do progressive scan (alis works slightly differently). However not all progressve scan is good. The method used to de-interlace to progressive is important as are other issues.

    So forget about specs for a second. Go and view some units and see what makes best image. Then check if it is possible to use tha device with an off board video processor to improve it further in the future. That way you get the best now and later.....

    Hope this helps a little,

    Gordon

    Hitachi PD3000 is an ALIS panel and accepts progressive scan, right?

    I've just looked on the Philips website.

    20PF9925 LCD display > Progressive Scan

    32PF9964 Plasma display > says nothing about progressive...
