    Please could someone shed some light on a small issus ive got?

    At work the other day we had in the new Panasonic HT42PE50 plas. We also had there new dvd recorder the DMR-ES10. This outputs a progressive scan signal via component so I opted for this. I used a set of Monster leads (about £60) as we also sell them at work. The thing is whenever I watched anything with progressive scan, it looked EXACTLY the same when I turned it off? Am I missing something here? I thought progressive was meant to be an amazing picture compared to interlaced? Im not kidding when I say that the two pictures were INDENITCAL with or without p/s. Am I doing something wrong connections wise or anything? I went into the set-up section on the dvd recorder and changed the output to component and turned progressive to on but like I said it makes no difference at all.

    Please help!!!

    the screen is prog scan anyway....so unless dvd does much better job of it you wouldn't see a difference. Is the picture bad though?

    mep,
    the picture isnt bad. its weird when I turn the sharpness up then there can be quite a bit of "dot crawl" and the edges of things ripple a little. I thought component leads eliminated dot crawl? But no the picture is overall amazing Im just an extremley picky person when it comes to picture quality and stuff. It was just a suprise to not see any change in picture quality at all? When I did the same experiment on a Sony plasma a while ago now you could definately notice an improvment in picture when you turned the progressive scan on.
