    I've got an Hitachi PD5200 connected to a pioneer dvd565 with a component cable (upgraded from RGB scart) but when I switch on progressive output from the player menu, the picture has shifted down

    Also, although this should probably be a seperate thread, the audio is out of sync by about a full second even though I still output digital sound to my amp.

    Any ideas ?

    Is the audio one second in front or behind?
    If it's behind then it would seem likely that the processing in your display (a plasma?) is adding a delay. I understand that some amps have a master delay setting to allow you compensate for this or you can add a box in line to add a digital delay.
    If it's ahead then I'm lost for an answer.

    You might get more answers in a forum relevant to either the display or the AV amp?

    Surely if the display is taking its time processing the picture signal, then the audio would be in front and adding a delay would be OK.

    Yup, looks like I got my audio and video confused while typing :D. If the audio is ahead of the picture adding a delay at the amp would be the way to compensate.
