    What happens when I feed a interlaced PAL signal in to my Fujitsu P42VHA20 (853x480) non interlaced display? Does it convert it to progressive before displaying?

    If I was actually outputing a progressive PAL signal, does the panel skip it's own de-interlacing step?

    I'm trying to work out whether I should upgrade my old-ish DVD player to a progressive scan player. I want to hold off for now, to let the DVD recorders get a little better and a little cheaper.

    Sub,

    Thankfully you have a progressive displaying panel, otherwise we would be in for a right discussion!. The panel will convert the interlaced input into progressive and display as such.

    The way in which it does this was discussed in another thread :-

    But in a nut shell it has been concluded that it combines the two feilds, making a progressive frame (different deinterlacing techniques depending on source) and then displays.

    The final picture quality will depend on the quality of the deinterlacing involved. Generally external deinterlacers are of a better quality than the panels own.
