    I took home my brand new DV88+ last night looking forward to seeing the reults of PAL Progressive output on my panny plasma but ended up slightly confused.

    The manual states that the machine only outputs a progressive signal from an NTSC disc or when the display is set to NTSC (which it then goes on to say would cause flicker from a PAL disc)...

    Please could somebodyb explain? Does it really output PAL progressive? how to I set it up to do so? And why doesn't the manual shout about it?!

    I have mine set to auto for the output (NTSC for NTSC discs/PAL for PAL).. and in the menu there is a progressive option which you can have ntsc only or NTSC and PAL (525/576) prog scan.. and thats it.

    Works like a charm

    Thanks Matt,

    I'll get it hooked up and set as you suggest this evening.

    Do you agree that the manual gives the impression the machine doesn't do PAL progressive or is it just me?

    When we wrote the manual (and printed thousands of copies) PAL PS wasn't legal. So it wasn't referred do directly. In practice it is fully supported in the DV88Plus.

    HTH.
