    Seem very impressed with spec on Limit DVDA 900SE.
    Before buying can somebody guide me on the following:

    1. Progressive scan. I have a Toshiba DD TV, is this suitable to run progressive scan? (It is a 100hz set.)

    2. I currently have my DVD player connected by Scart to the TV and by Digital optical to my Onkyo Amp. Do you set a progressive scan player the same?

    3. To use DVD audio is it the same set up as 2.?

    Many thanks o wise ones!!

    1. Not unless it has component inputs (three phono like sockets coloured red, green & blue). Very few CRT tv's do, but they are starting to.

    2. Progessive is supplied over component cables, 3 of them.

    3. Not overly familiar with dvd audio but I think you need to run seperate audio cables, 6 of them, from the player to the amp. Presuming your amp has a 6 channel input.

    Progressive scan is purely to do with video - yes, you would still connect your DVD player to your amp via your digital optical output.

    When you mention DVD Audio, I assume you are talking about DVD-A - this needs to be connected to your amp via six phono leads, one each for Front Left and Right, Centre, and Surround Left and Right plus finally one for the subwoofer. This is necessary as the DVD-A decoding is performed in the DVD player rather than in the Amp.

    Hope this is helpful.

    The TV needs more than just a component input to output progressive scan.
    If it has component inputs use them anyway, but you will get NTSC prog. scan if you use an old picture frame or stasia(?) range model
    and both PAL and NTSC if it's one of the new picture frame or stasia(?)
    if it's none of those, it's a no.
