    Hi,

    just wondering because no one has given me a definite answer.
    Im planning on getting the new Sony 92 hdmi dvd player and connect it to my Pnasonic AE700 projector via 720P hdmi.

    In Australia the 92 only supports Progressive scan NTSC (go figure !)

    IS THIS STATEMENT CORRECT: ????????

    "There is PAL 576i and 576p which is done by progressive scan DVD players. Then there is NTSC 480i and 480p which is again processed by the DVD player. When you get into the 720p/1080i standard there is no PAL or NTSC. 720p and 1080i is the standard"

    If your disk is a PAL disk you will get 720p/1080i @ 50, if your disk is a NTSC disk you will get 720p/1080i @ 60

    PAL & NTSC are standards use to transmit the colour information in video. Therefore the 50htz & 60htz is not directly related to the video standards, but is to do with the power supplies in the relevent regions, ie USA has 60htz 110v & UK 50htz 240v electricity supplies.
    Hi Def video is not split into PAL & NTSC (or any others such as SECAM) like SD video, but it will still have the 2 refresh rates of 50 & 60 htz.
