When will we ever see a televison that is capable off displaying a true 576p resolution? I remember reading that panasonic intends not to introduce pal-progressive tvs and dvd-players in europe. This seems to be the case as panasonic has never advertised a pal-prog product. The general consensus on avSforum seems to be that currently the top-dollar tv's in the U.S. are limited to 480p. Some new models advertise 1080i or 720p functionality, but I think they downconvert the signal to 480p or maybe 540p - if we are lucky. Though i have been looking forward to a true 576p tv, I just dont see it happening, in the near future, and I find it hard to trust that the current new pana/jvc/thomson models are capable of displaying a full pal prog signal (even if people on this forum are convinced that this is so) because of the fact that this is not beeing advertised, and because it is not even possible in the U.S. I must admit that I am dissapointed that it is not yet possible to buy a 576p tv, especially considering that pc monitors and companies like monovision in the U.S. easily beats these low resolutions and have done so for years. rant over.
