    Hi,
    I'm expecting my first PJ in a week or two (AE700) but it will be a month or so before I can upgrade my dvd player (pioneer 626 - panasonic s97), and I was wondering if the PJ had any on board de-interlacing (no prog on my pioneer) or will I have to live with scan lines for a while? :eek:

    Cheers!

    The simple answer is yes. Your lcd panel has to present a full image for each frame so is by its very nature progressive. All panel projectors will therefore have a deinterlacing circuit.

    The difference really is the quality of the deinterlacing. Some deinterlacing chipsets are better than others (eg. Faroudja) so I'd live with your current setup for a while but plan for an investment in a progressive player.

    Better still if you could live with it a PC can give the best dvd output, but that is a different issue altogether.

    Have a look in the progressive part of the forum for some further information.

    Regards,
