    After having two Progressive capable CRT's in less than a month, there's one thing that I've noticed on both. NTSC Progressive always appears to be far better quality than PAL progressive [lucky ol' me happens to have mainly R1 discs anyway].

    Just wondering if any of you experts out there might be able to explain why (without blinding me with science). Is it simply harware compatibility or is it something to do with the actual colour system differences?

    Best wishes,

    LAGAVULIN

    P.S. The two CRT's were the Tosh 36ZP38 and the Panny 36PD30 playing DVD's through a Denon 2900 (NTSC & PAL Progressive)

    In direct response, no, I haven't tried the JVC's. But to be fair, both the Tosh and the Panny are great at producing both PAL & NTSC Prog, it's just that it seems NTSC offers the better picture (at least from my experience of these two sets, which suggests to me that it might be inherent in the format, I dunno).

    Anyway, as the majority of my DVD collection is R1 NTSC, so much the better [for me at least:smashin: ]

    It's just that I was wondering WHY it seems to be that way, not that I'm complaining:p
