yes or no?
Plus what is the difference between the "P" and "Q" verson...and was there a "B" verson?
Plus if it has'nt my DVD player has does the TV need it to be able to turn it on for the DVD?
The pq18's don't have progressive scan capability. The new Picture Frame 2 sets do. Whether it is able to accept PAL or just NTSC a la the Strata range is undetermined at the moment. I suspect NTSC only.
I don't think the TV (pq18) will accept a progressive (NTSC only) signal from a DVD player. The new picture frame sets have a inbuilt deinterlacer which enables them to display a picture "pseudo" progressively in normal TV viewing and display a pure progressive signal from a DVD player's own (NTSC) output.
The Q version is a slightly updated model (remote, text facilities - the question was asked and answered by John Archer in the latest Home Cinema Choicemagazine) but essentially the same TV.
I think the difference between P and B refers to European or British. Again seems to be very little, if any, difference in terms of function or facilities.
Forum member " Mambo " say it 100% definitely does, Toshiba say it 100% definitely does not.
We will soon know who's right !
I have the "Q" verson where can I find out if that has prog scan and what other facilities...it's too late to get Home Cinema Choice magazine as they don't sell it around here
