    I've had a 36" Toshiba Picture frame telly since last summer. I've been thinking I'd like to upgrade my dvd player to one with progressive scan, as the tv is a 100hz one. A fair amount of my dvd collection are NTSC. How do 100 hz telly's play NTSC movies? Do they ramp it up to 120hz, or drop down to 60hz? Would I only benefit from PAL dvd's with prog scan and this telly?

    If I've completely missunderstood the details of prog scan, please correct me.....!

    Thanks!

    Unfortunately your tv does not support progressive scan, so a progressive scan dvd player would be wasted.
    The 100Hz modes do indeed up to to 120Hz when playing NTSC material.

    Bugger! So it's 100hz but interlaced then? It updates alternate lines twice as much?
