    I’d posted the same question on another forum but received no answer, so I would like to try in here to see if I have luck or not.

    Here it goes:

    I’ve been reading about DVD player with component out for sometime now and decided to have a new player with it; but then I came across this progress and interlace, according to what I read, mostly said progressive is better; then I run into this PAL/NTSC progressive and am not able to find out which one should I get.

    I have the following questions:

    1. my PJ has component input (with BNCs), does it mean I can connect any player with component out into this PJ?

    2. is the PAL/NTSC progress depend on the DVD played or the type or TV (or PJ in my case) used? I think my PJ is multi-system (i.e. it displays both PAL and NTSC movies) but I watch mostly R1 DVD (which is NTSC), so am I better get a player with PAL or NTSC progressive?

    Thank you very much for your time.

    P/s. I think this is an obvious question to most of you therefore no one bother to answer in other forum, so could you please kindly point me a direction to go for more information? Many thanks.

    Potato,

    Without you specifying what projector you are using it is going to be very difficult to give you any advice.

    As you are the only one who knows your setup I strongly recommend that you perform a search on this forum. Just click on the search button as all your questions have been answered here before.

    Regards,

    Jean-Paul

    Theoretically yes. I hope you are not confusing Component (YUV / YCrCb) with RGB?
    BTW: Progressive YUV is called YPbPr - please check with your PJs manual.

    2. is the PAL/NTSC progress depend on the DVD played or the type or TV (or PJ in my case) used?

    On both.

    I think my PJ is multi-system (i.e. it displays both PAL and NTSC movies) but I watch mostly R1 DVD (which is NTSC), so am I better get a player with PAL or NTSC progressive?

    You better get a player which supports both. Coming out soon as it seems PAL PS has been legalized now.
