    if i were to connect the screenplay 4805 up via component video to the marantz 4300 dvd player, will the output image be pal progressive scan? i believe the 4300 is only ntsc, but was wondering whether the 4805 has its own pal progressive scan feature? thank you for any help

    I think I'm right in saying that the 4805 along with most/all other dlp/lcd projectors can only display a progressive image. If your DVD is capable and set to output a progressive image then the 4805 will simply output the progressive signal as it receives it. However, if the 4805 is fed with a non-progressive signal, then its own internal processor will convert it.

    My experience, and this is talking generally, is that most progressive DVD players under £500 can't compete with the onboard processing cabability of the 4805. I have an Arcam DV89 (which was a £1k player), which I believe to be slightly better at it than the 4805, but there's not much in it.
