    Having a tinker around with my A11 the other day when setting up via the THX Optimization on the Incredibles DVD I noticed that my Progressive Mode was set for Auto 1 (Default).

    There are other settings - Auto 2 and a few video modes also.

    It has been some time since I had played around in the menus...:D

    Is there any recommendation as to what this should be set to?

    Does it make any difference as to what Region disc you feed as the manual says Auto 2 is for 30 frame material (NTSC 29.97?) so I assume Auto 1 is for PAL 25?

    I am guessing that over 50% of my collection is Region 1 although I am buying more R2 discs these days...

    Sort of defeats the object of using the word Auto if you have to set it to suit the type of disc doesn't it? :rotfl:

    I've always wondered about the difference between Film & Video modes anyway...:confused:

    Thanks & regards,

    Hello again Jase,

    Thanks for the pointer - I have seen this before...is it me or is that site a bear to navigate and find what you are looking for? :confused:

    I will try Auto 2 but am guessing I will not see any difference apart from having peace of mind that I have at least selected the 'correct' setting.

    Thanks again & kind regards,
    -=Glyn=-

    That site can be a bit of a mare to navigate around but it's got some excellent info available on it.

    You're not wrong there Jase,

    ISTR that Kris Deering used to have the A11 before he upgraded to the A1 so it looks like I will be in good company!

    Kind regards,
