    Have just bought a Jamo DVR50 and have a 9986 on the way due wednesday. On looking in the Jamo manual it say progressive scan is only available via componate video.

    Does the philips have this connection ?

    this maybe a thicky question. Just forgive me

    To cut a long story short yes............. It can be conected via a component adapter that comes with the TV.

    The one problem you may run into is that the signal will need to be progressive scan, so I hope that your Jamo outputs progressive for all disks.

    Regards

    Yes it does, thats why i bought it plus ergonomicly it looks good. So all I need to do is buy some leads.
    What quality should i go for I dont mind spending £30ish but obviously only if its worth it. www.tvcables.co.uk have so many and im not sure what ones I need. If some one could identify which ones would be best id be greatfull for the part no, and while your there I need a quality scart lead for my ski +

    thanks in advance

    You'll need a component lead and a scart or two...

    I got the £5.99 scart from tvcables and the £8.99 component lead. (This may now be £6.99!) These are excellent quality leads and I can't fault them.

    But the machine has built in prog scan.

    Isn't this equivalent to plugging it into the rgb scart and switching to prog scan mode?

    No. PS is only available over component (in this case) and has to be specially selected in the DVD's output menu.

    If you connect your DVD player to the component inputs then the DVD player performs the interlaced to progressive scan conversion.

    If you connect your DVD player via RGB SCART then the TV performs the interlaced to progressive scan conversion.

    As to which is the best solution - that is the $64000 question. It is assumed that the progressive scan conversion in DVD players is better than the TV. This may or may not be the case. Try for yourself and see which one performs better.
