    Not sure if anyone out there can offer any advice with this query......

    I'm running a Hitachi PJ-TX10 with a Toshiba SD330 DVD player via component video. The Tosh component video output is interlaced.

    I'm considering upgrading the Tosh 330 to the newer Tosh SD340 which provides a progressive component video ouput.

    The question is whether I am likely to determine any noticeable improvement in image quality using the progressive scan output source (340) as opposed to the current interlaced ouput (330)

    The Hitachi TX10 obviously has a built in scaler/descaler which I believe de-interlaces any interlaced input to present the viewable image in pseudo 'progressive' format. Will a progressive scan video source make any improvements ?

    Any thoughts ?

    I initially ran S-video into the TX100 and it looked fine, but progressive scan component looks better (I purchased the Pioneer 575).
    Whether you will see much of a difference is tough to call, I don't think you will to be honest. Think you'll have to step up to DVI-D to see an improvement. I'd do this but I'm worried about the cable run (15m)

    Ah, just read TX10 not 100, sorry :suicide:

    Unfortunately no DVI-D on the TX10. Would love a TX100 but took the plunge with the TX10 14 months ago. Need to use it for a few more months (years ?!?) before I can justify another wedge of cash to upgrade.

    Entirely happy with optical performance but would like to eek out the optimum image performance with a prog scan input.

    Thanks,
    Mr Sparkle
