    Hi!

    Do you know if the Panasonic PW5 can turn PAL signals into
    progressive PAL pictures.

    Thanks,

    Claus

    not sure about your question , but if you put a pal progressive signal into the panny it will show it and do a very nice job at showing it ,

    The plasma converts everything to progressive scan. It cannot display an interlaced image. The real questions are

    Can it accept a progressive scan input?
    Is it's de-interlacing as good as that from an external device such as a prog scan dvdplayer/de-interlacer/scaler?

    The latter question must be answered by viewing.

    P.S The D5 cann accept PalProg from external devices and most of them will be superior to its own internal processing

    Thanks!!

    I have a Primare V10 DVD player which I can change into the V25, which is the top model. The V25 has Progressive NTSC and PAL output. It will cost me 350 pounds more. Is it worth it?

    I have an analogue satellite signal going into my S-Video VCR. Is it much better to run a S-video signal to the plasma versus a composite video signal?
    The analogue signal is crap!!

    Looking forward to your opinions!

    Regards,

    Claus
