    Hey all,

    I was speaking to someone who works at Toshiba and he told me that a 100hz picture completely removes any flickering. I found that an interesting statement as I have a Toshiba 28ZD26B tv and when I select 100hz in the menu I flickering is quite noticeable.

    I know that the argument between 50hz and 100hz has been raging for ages but I usually watch tv using the progressive setting. Is this setting basically a tweaked 100hz image or is it downscaled to 50hz?

    Cheers :)

    The flickering menu is nothing to judge it by. it just flickers, the picture shouldn't.
    Progressive mode de-interlaces, painting the whole picture in one sweep, 50 times a second. Interlaced 50 hertz paints half the picture 50 times a second (introducing flicker) and Interlaced 100 hertz (standard 100hz - there is no 100hz progressive as far as i know!) paints half the picture really fast - 100 times a second - reducing flicker. I see 100hz as a "wannabe" progressive mode, stick with progressive mode it should be the best.
