    I worte a long bit before and it didn't post so here goes in short hand.

    Equipment:

    PioneerHDE 503 PDP and Receiver box
    Iscan Pro/Denon DVD 2800

    Connection:

    Y-Cb-Cr component video

    Why won't PAL pro-sacn work on the Pioneer plasma?

    NTSC pro-scan is fine but PAL doesn't work on the screen, it detects 480p fine but not 580p (as it calls it, obviously 576p), it flicked up intially a few times but then didn't work at all.

    Cheers anyone!

    Does it not work with the ISCAN set to output RGsB prog scan?

    Gordon

    P.S I've never sold one of these plasma's so don't know whether 576 @ 50 Hz is supported format.

    I made one small mistake on the name front, it's the 503HDE not MXE, the home version arther than monitor only.

    I was hoping to use the rear component inputs on the receiver box so i didn't have to have a great big RGBHV cable hanging out the front of the box looking ugly.

    I have emailed Pioneer about the matter seeing as it is pretty silly really not to suppor PAl pro-scan, all othe PDP's seem to.

    Cheers Gordon.

    Richard,
    The answer could lie in the fact that 576P isn't yet a recongnised signal format. Some manufacturers support it, others don't. Many plasmas have a problem with this.

    Regards

    Argh booger!

    It works fine with the NEC plasmas.

    So annoying, perhaps a software upgarde is in order, or maybe some key tapping...

    The HDE 503 will accept a PAL proscan input via. it's front PC input from an RGBHV source such as the Iscan Pro or Quadscan Elite HD. The Isacn has it's signal displayed as 800x600 which causes a small ratio error, but using the Quadscan HD you can input a fully scaled 1280x768 signal and the pic should be good.

    Wahoo!

    Quadscan Elite HD info:

    I'm sure Gordon knows the price of it.
