    I know this has been asked before but I have searched and can't find the thread! Q: How do I know if my panel is outputting progressive scan? There is a way into the service menu apparently, which gives that info. Which setting should I use for NTSC or PAL prog.scan? Is it more likely that the panel is already set-up for prog.scan? The picture is so darned good anyway I can't imagine it could be better! But it might be...! Any help appreciated.

    The picture displayed will be Progessive because the plasma is a progressive device. It will de-interlace an interlaced signal to display it.

    The question is
    Is the picture better if the de-interlacing is done externally & fed progressively to the RCA/BNC inputs (that will accept Prog scan input.) ?

    If you want to see if the panel is accepting a Progessive INPUT
    here is the link to the thread you were looking for I believe.

    Thank you, you answered my question satisfactorily and also led me to the thread I was looking for! Don't worry, I'll be careful. Thanks again.
