Can the Dreamcast do prog. scan or at least output in component?
If so, what leads do I need?
Most DC games support Prog Scan via the VGA output box. Not sure about component though, i would think not without some kind of converter.
VGA is effectively progressive scan. Have a look on Scancom.ltd.uk for vga to component convertors.
I was hoping there was someway of at least getting a component signal out of it by modding a lead (similar to the RGB lead for the GC where a component and analogue lead a wired up to output RGB) but obviously not.
What do you want to display the image on? Like NeilMcRae & SeaneyC say, the VGA output is a progressive image - and looks superb on an LCD projector and on my plasma.
I wanted to display it on my Toshiba 28ZD26P, the same as my GC, PS2 and Xbox.
the signals are completely different I'm afraid. One of the virtues of a VGA port on a Plasma
