    Hi,

    Ive just bought myself a Toshiba 36ZT29B.
    Here is a good site with the specifications. http://www.ciao.co.uk/Productinformation/Toshiba_36ZT29B__5338246/

    As it says, it has progressive scan. and it says right on the front of the TV too.

    Now, Ive got a PS2 and Gamecube, which obviously use progressive scan too. But everytime I try to use the progressive scan, the TV just goes blank, ( blue is the blank colour for my tv ).

    The cables Ive tried to use on my TV are:

    A normal scart ps2 lead into the "scart" which says 1 x SCART (RGB) ( 21 PIN SCART ) - rear. That doesnt work. Which I kow shouldn’t.

    Well the Gamecube one I cant find on the net I bought, cost me about £40 Its got 2 things that plug into the Gamecube 1 purple cable and 1 black and they connect with each other, making 1 purple scart head. Supposedly for pal gamcubes. That doesn’t work either. This makes the picture better, but I also lose my surround sound which are connected into my tv.

    When I plug my red/yellow/white sockets from my Gamecube into the side of my TV, the picture is ok, not as good as the RGB scart, or my normal scart, but I get the proper surround sound.

    Then I have this cable, which has the connecting part to the xbox, ps2 and Gamecube, then a little box, which switches from av-to rgb and then the scart head for the consoles, and a red, yellow white thing. While that makes the picture better for my normal tv, playing import games, it doesn’t fix the progressive sound, and also I lose my surround sound.

    So I was wondering, what cables do I need to get progressive scan on my PS2 and Gamecube, and also xbox and dvd player. I use it mainly for import Japanese and US games.
    Will it be cables like these:

    I don’t think this 1 will work

    Lik-sang said this is for the pc monitors. And also gave me this message:
    Basically, just connect your DVD with the RGB scart cable and activate
    progressive scan mode, and you should be fine.

    I think this might work, but cant seem to find a ps2 version.

    Im very worried I cant get my progressive scan on my TV. It says progressive scan, and it should work. Is there anything like an all in 1, for all my consoles?

    Thank you very much, sorry for the long message.
    Pease please help me.

    sorry about posting this thread in 3 different boards here.
    Thank you

    Kourosh

    Component video is usually only accepted via the component or DVI/HDMI sockets on a TV. SCART is usually interlaced only, and Composite/S-video can ONLY be interlaced.

    If you want to connect your consoles to your TV using progressive connections - you need to use component connections.

    You might also need to check that PS/2 or Gamecubes and the games you have support progressive as well. It may be that UK PS/2s don't by default.

    Hi,
    Thanks for the reply.
    My consoles are jpn or us, my ps2 and xbox are pal but play import games.
    Yeah the games I play are the ones with progressive scan option.

    The back of TV does have that Y, PB/CB, PR/CR.

    Could anyone give me an example of the cable I would need or where to buy from?

    The magic words are COMPONENT - avoid SCART, RGB, Composite, S-video etc.
    It should come with 5 RCA Phonos (3 for the Y, Pr and Pb and two for left and right analogue audio) and possibly also an optical Toslink digital audio socket as well.
