    I have tried to test the progressive output on this DVD but my TV just displays a black screen.

    Its connected via a Denon 2307 AV reciever to a Sony KDL40W2000 - the tv should be able to display progressive images from the DVD.

    Any ideas what might be wrong?

    Does it work when plugged directly into the TV?

    Not tried that yet :eek:

    I wired the whole thing up (which took a noob like myself) quite a while and tested everything and it seemed ok. So its all now neatly placed in the corner and not that easy to get to.

    It was only later I discovered the progressive option on the menu and tried it. Thought it might be something obvious in settings that someone on here could help out with before pulling the whole thing out!

    If no joy on here - I'll have to try direct.

    Ok. How is it connected from the player to the amp and then from amp to the TV? e.g Component in, HDMI out.

    Might be worth checking the manual of the TV just to see what signals it does accept and via which inputs.

    DVD to Amp - component cable.

    Amp to TV - HDMI (one single cable out for all sources).

    One of the main attractions with this amp was that you connect all you kit (Wii, 360, Sky, DVD, iPod) to the Amp - video and audio (optical for DD5.1). And only have the one connection to the TV over HDMI.

    Will be a bit gutted if this setup means no progressive DVD :(

    Will have a look at the manuals tonight.

    Usually it's the other way around with HDMI. Some displays can't accept a 480i/576i signal but will accept 480p/576p. The manual should indicate what it can accept. :)

    An update incase anyone else has similar issues.

    It works perfectly in the way I initially had it set up.

    However I think the 'issue' was that when you switch to the progressive mode it displays it for a period of 5 seconds before swithing back and asking "Could you see the display?". The answer was no - because I think it takes the amp and/or TV longer to process the change in image therefore I had only seen a blank screen.

    After reading manuals/specs etc of all equipment and some comments on here I decided it SHOULD work, so I wrote the down the remote inputs to move to and from and gave it a go.

    Worked fine :thumbsup:

    Thanks for the help.
