    Hi all,

    very close to getting a LCD - bit of a toss up between the panny, sammy and hitachi.

    Anyways - after last months great review of the panny in Home Cinema Choice, i noticed the component input does not have progressive scan? is this correct?

    If so what would be the resulting difference using the component input for dvd and or XBOX 360?

    cheers

    Bill

    The panny does do progressive scan via the component input, mine is working beautifully with my DV89, I would suggest you download the manual from the panasonic web site all the details are in there.

    thanks for the reply del - would i be right in thinking it accepts progressive rather than having a progressive option of its own?

    I am curious as to what would happen if i connected a device via component which didn't output progressive.

    Basically i want a great screen for dvds and consoles.

    I have an old "non-progressive" Sony DVD player (DVPS725D) connected via component and it works just fine.

    i suppose what i'm looking for is an explanation of the difference between component ports on hitachi, sammy and the panasonic. Will i be loosing some kind of processing by getting the panny?

    Well I just tried a DVD with the progressive option turned off on the DVD player with no problems at all.

    There does not seem to be a progressive option in any of the TV menus, but the front page of the manual does describe the TV as being a DIGITAL PROGRESSIVE LCD TV if that helps.

    ok........

    so if the hitachi and samsung have progressive components connections - does this mean i could connect a non progressive source to them and get progressive scan on the signal - whereas the panny can only get progressive if the source outputs progressive?

    certainly, the pansonic will convert any source from interlaced to progressive(it can't display a picture any other way), and it should do the job better than most dvd players would (as the equpment is 10 times the price), so you would probably get a better picture form interlaced component ( i.e let the tv convert to progressive) than progressive component ( where the dvd player does the converting).
