This from a guy from on one of the newsgroups "You will be hard pushed to notice the difference between prgressive scan done within the DVD player or within the screen itself. I use a TH-42PWD4 which has progressive scan built in, and my DVD player does not output progressive. Picture quality is absolutely superb and faultless. I've seen the same screen using a pure NTSC progressive signal and could not see any difference at all." I am wrestling with the purchase of PAL/NTSC PS DVD for my Panasonic Plasma and this stopped me in my tracks. Is this correct in anyway It's bad enough with all hullabaloo over PS PAL DVD's without this being thrown in.
