    hi i have a television (pana tx28pb50)
    and it has progressive scan, that is i can change the display mode from either 100hz mode or prog scan mode. however i cant find any imput on the tv for progressive scan. as far as i am aware i would need a component cable which has an input looking not unlike your usual VLR imput. this seems really strange to me i can't figure out why a tv boasting progressive scan doesnt seem to have a prog input :mad:
    the technician is coming over tomorrow to look at the faulty optical and av port on it anyway. so what should i ask him? its confusing

    thanks for any help guys,
    much appriciated :)

    Some TV´s have their own Progressive Scan Mode (internal De-Interlacing) whereas others have Component Video Inputs to accept a Progressive Scan Signal from a suitably equiped dvd player. In addition these TV´s usually have their own Prog.Scan Mode as well.

    Just depends on the TV. For example JVC´s new HV32D25 can accept both NTSC and PAL Progressive via the Component Inputs but it also has a Movie Theatre Mode for use with normal interlaced signals (RGB/S-Video/Component). The Philips 9527 P+ has its own Progressive Scan Mode for NTSC playback but no Component Inputs for an external Prog.Scan signal.

    ok thanks
    so i suppose my tv just has internal de-interlacing

    doesn't sound like true prog scan but its only a 28"
    just would be nice to be able to plug in a couple of digital av plugs like from my nintendo gamecube
