    Yes, it will "deinterlace" an interlaced signal as all fixed panel PJs display progressively scanned images.

    Whether a progressive scan enabled DVD player will produce better results is down to the player & whether it deinterlaces better than the PJ's own deinterlacer.

    ......lot of deinterlacers in there.....:)

    Actually, from what I have read on projector central...it looks like many projectors do better with an interlaced signal.

    I was wondering the same thing myself. I have an early model of the Pioneer 757ai which has PAL progressive disabled (you have to pay £90 to Pioneer to get it enabled - bloody cheek!) and I am not sure if it will be worth it.

    I would assume that the deinterlacer in the Pioneer DVD player would be better than in the Panasonic AE700 (which I'm still waiting for) - but how much better? Is it worth £90 and letting some engineer get his grubby paws on it?
