    My first (misguided) impressions were that the Pioneer DV-656A had progressive scan, but to my shock, I've found out it's only for the US models.

    Is it likely we'll see a DV-656A with PAL Progressive Scan?

    What happens if you use R1/NTSC DVDs in the UK player?

    There seem to be some magazine reviews out there stating this player has NTSC PS, but my manual makes no mention of it (UK player from RS). Unfortunately I have no R1 disks so can not check for you.

    However, Uncle Eric has reported that it will do NTSC PS as standard and is offering a powerbuy that may include some kind of PAL PS upgrade. See the Powerbuy forum for details

    Here is a quote from Octobers "Home Entertainment" magazine:

    "With the DV-656A you get progressive scan pictures for connection to compatible projectors and plasma screens (technically in NTSC only, but like most DVD locks, this too can be by-passed for PAL disks thansk to your friendly neighbourhood hot-rodder)"
