    Hi.

    Excellent forums. I am reading a lot about the benefits of progressive scan, but would like to actually see the results on a PAL system.

    Can you simulate this by connecting a PC at the native screen resolution of the plasma direct to the VGA input, and use a software DVD player running at full screen mode?

    I am led to believe that PCs use a full-frame method at 31kHz to display images, so I am thinking this should give an idea of the appearance. Or have I got it wrong?

    A PC's output is progressive, non iterlaced, and can be matched to the native resolution of any panel. Lots of us do it here, see the HCPC forum. Ideally, you need a program called dscaler, which does the res. and refresh matching.
