    After spending what seemed an eternity on the Panasonic customer support (!) number, I was put through to tech helpdesk and assured that the AE100 does NOT accept a PAL progressive scan signal.
    There has been quite a bit of talk on here regarding this, I recall someone saying that had seen 625p on their OSD.
    You would think that what the guy from Panasonic said was correct; although he did come over as a rather unhelpful person.
    I may be in the market for a PAL P/S DVD player in the near future and wonder if anyone can supply a definitive answer as to whether the AE100 can or cannot do 625p.

    Panasonic do not even know their own products :rolleyes:
    I had it working for a while with a crappy Lecson player which I no longer have.
    You only get 625p from componant input, if you try to do it via the vga port it comes up svga.
    Have a read here
    There were some photo's of the AE100 menu showing 625p but I cannot find them now. :confused:

    All we need now is a good low cost player to offer pal progressive.

    It has been reorted you may have lipsinc problems with pal progressive with the AE100, I did slightly with the Lecson, and it has also been reported that the Denon 2800 suffers this problem with the AE100.

    yep, another yes for pal progressive here - saw it up and running at the mini-shootout some months back, using the imported phillips 962a (i think thats the model number)

    looked stunning
