Hi, I have just received an E-Mail from Denon in which I asked if the new DVD-2800 MKII would support PAL Prog. Scan....their response is as follows: Thank you for your e-mail regarding Denon Products. At this present time Pure Progressive Scan in PAL is Illegal, this is in conjunction with the DVD-FORUM. With the DVD-2800II you would need to take the picture to your Panasonic in an interlace mode. Please speak to your dealer for his input on this subject. . What!?!?! Why is PAL Prog Scan illegal? what is the reason that NTSC is okay but we can't have it? I am feeling extremly frustrated in trying to decide which DVD player to get to match up with my Future Panasonic/Toshiba 42" Plasma.
