    i am thinking about getting a tosh 42wp36 rear pro tv and i have found out that it's ntsc Proscan only.
    What i was wondering is there any way that a dvd player could convert pal dvd's to output ntsc ps
    Could the marantz dv4300 do this as it is said to have a PS converter.
    If so what would the picture be like when converting

    Does that Marantz have it's own deinterlacer? - with Progressive scanning in PAL and/or NTSC output?

    To get NTSC progressive you'll need a DVD player with Component output and it's own NTSC de-interlacer, ie Toshiba 900E.

    Checking Marantz's site....ah yes the Marantz is progressive scan,

    Since that Toshiba RP is still new, we're not sure if it'll de-interlace any incoming interlaced input, or if it needs a external de-interlacer. Also not 100% sure that it doesn't support PAL progressive. Maybe it does, tech. support are sometimes wrong.

    Perhaps when someone buys one of these new Tosh RP's will try both PAL & NTSC internal progressive & PAL & NTSC external progressive?

    [edit]

    According the manual...

    "DV4300 is optimized for the
    high resolution and low noise of the DVD-Video format for
    both PAL and NTSC software"

    But could be PR BS too! :laugh: How many times have we seen similar? (Denon!)

    Internal- you send normal interlaced component to the display, and the display itself de-interlaces and removes 3:2 pulldown.

    External- you use the DVD player's own de-interlacer & 3:2 pulldown circuitry (ie Toshiba SD-900E) and output progressive via the component outputs. The display will just output this, with no processing. Another method of external de-interlacer is a Iscan Ultra, or a Home Theatre PC.

    Normally external ones are higher quality.

    I believe the HK DVD30 does do PAL AND NTSC Progressive, but the Denon doesn't- only NTSC (anyone please correct me if I'm wrong)

    Unless someone comes back and reports back we really don't know. A email from Technical support (can) be wrong. It might work. Or if Tech support says PAL Progressive works- in practice maybe it's flawed- checkout the Toshiba CRT Progressive thread.

    According to the Toshiba xx36xx manual- it says 525i/525p/625i/626p. So yes. But then (Dimmmy?) got email saying no to PAL progressive.

    Too many what if's and maybe's at this time.

    PAL Progressive is 626P, and NTSC Progressive is 525P.

    "P" stands for Progressive, and "i" stands for interlaced. Different refresh rates, different (vertical?) resoultion.

    Surely PAL progressive is 576p and NTSC is 480p. Or am I wrong?

    and Yes the Denon DVD2900 is PAL progessive straight out of the box.
