Sorry to sound like a thicky; what is an interlaced or progressive source?
Simply put, interlaced draws every other line at a time - for example it will draw lines 1,3,5,7 etc first and then draw lines 2,4,6,8 etc. Progressive scan draws all the lines at the same time. As a result progressive scan gives a better, more stable picture.
Having said that, the Hitachi 5200 (I've got a 5300) you have is an interlaced panel and does not (IMHO having done a load of tests) benefit from a progressive signal.
Current broadcast TV and DVDs are interlaced sources. Progressive scan sources will be Sky HD (at 720p) and next-gen DVD (at 1080p). Hope this helps.
