    Anyone out there tried NTSC prog scan on a Pioneer 433HDE

    I have now had the componet video lead for my PS dropped through the letterbox, hooked it up to the component in on my plasma, and flicked through PAL, NTSC and Progressive on 'The Getaway)

    PAL and NTSC display as 580i and 480i, but first time I tried Prog Scan the TV didn't switch quickly enough for me to confirm it

    Tried again and confirmed the choice 'blind' and after a mo the TV displayed 480p - great, BUT the picture is a bit purple (all the white is purple) and is scaled well of the bottom of the screen. None of the screen sizing options are enabled

    Noticed the manual specified that the TV needs to be 525p compatible, mine detects 480p, but these are the same thing aren't they?

    Unfortunately don't have another Prog Scan source to try (DVD player was a 'best buy' 2.5 years ago - doesn't even have component!) and funnily enough don't have another prog scan TV to try the playstation on!

    Therefore not sure whether its the PS2, just that game or the TV

    BTW the TV is Pioneer 433HDE which I believe from the forum should take 480p??

    (and PLEASE don't tell me I should have bought an MXE, I did the research and really wanted the tuner, features and ease of connection and John Lewis sold it to me for £4250 inc underslung speaker, stand and 5yr warranty)

    I thought the HDE did not support progressive scan. At least that's what I read in a recent thread.

    Well common opinion on various threads is that it support NTSC prog but not PAL prog - it is recognising it as a progressive signal, just not quite displaying it right.

    I am wondering if actually the PS2 is producing a PAL prog signal despite what the game manual implies.

    I suspect that this may have to wait until I can try a different prog source or a different telly!

    There should be a tuner box upgarde/swap-out to enable PAL PS at some point in the near future.
