    i currently own an arcam dv88 and i am thinking of upgrading to the fmj dv27 the question i have is regarding pal progressive i am just about to order a pioneer pdp433hde plasma and would like to know if the fmj dv27 would work when outputting a pal progressive signal into the pioneer plasma or would it only work with the ntsc signal if not any body out there tell me which plasma would offer me the pal & ntsc progressive option

    Yes the dv27 will output a pal progressive signal with a handset hack ... but you could upgrade your existing dv88 with a pal prog board and dvd-a options which would be a lot cheaper ...

    search the forum for dv88+ and dv89 posts and see what yoy think ...

    to upgrade my dv88 to progressive scan would cost me £350 but my dealer offered me £600 for mydv88 + £600 to upgrade to the dv27 so £250 difference i think the dv27 is the way for me to go

    Whilst the player will do it the HDE will not accept a Pal Prog signal only a NTSC one.

    The MXE version will accept both.

    Latest models of Arcam FMJ DV27 are PAL Progressive out the box, and no longer need the hack
