    Hi

    Thinking of upgrading my tosh 2109 player, to the 510 tosh, im a bit flimsy on p scan, would i be able to take advantage of it on my tv? My tv is a tosh and has component video inputs.

    Regards

    No! progressive scan is for using on Video projectors and plasma displays only.
    The 510 is a very good player, and you should notice a differance in picture and sound quality, its also a DVD-Audio player. You can still connect it via componant to your tv, you should see a differance in pic quality if you are using composite or s-video, its only slightly better than RGB.
    Do a search for the 510, its been discussed quite frequently lately.

    I beg to differ sir!

    I'm not sure if the Tosh TV will accept a prog scan signal, but prog scan is no longer just the domain of Plasmas and PJ.

    I.e. Loewe TV's will accepts a prog scan signal via YUV as a few others do, and it is becoming more of a point for manufacturers as RGB scart enabled sockets are.

    I am unaware of any Loewe TV that will accept a progressive scan signal in YUV.....They get YUV through the scart socket and this doesn't support progressive input.

    They can accept a progressive signal through their VGA option socket. This has to be in RGBHV though...not YUV/YPrPb. This is also for UK models. US models will I'd expect accept progressive component....

    Snowman.....It is very easy to take posts out of context. You posted that the Loewe's will accept a progressive YUV input. My post said they woudn't but would accept a progressive signal in another form.....one which progressive scan DVD players don't usually output... I expect the post of mine you cut and pasted from also explained this...Can't really make it any clearer for you!

    Thanks ppl, TimH I have read of the 510 on this forum, I think tosh players are the best and decided on the 510 because of its features and reviews.

    On the P scan bit im pretty sure i read something of hdtv being able to accept p scan. My tv is tosh 32zd09b

    One other thing my current player the 2109 (a classic) has a the excellent QED SQART AV 4110 scart onnection, if i was to use component video from the 510 am i going to se a great difference? Or is it better to carry on using the 4110 cable? Seems a shame to leave it to waste.

    Cheers

    Hi,

    I've got a plasma - Fujitsu 4222.

    And am thinking of upgrading dvd player.

    If I get one with Prog scan, how do I make use of it?

    My plasma has inputs for:

    1) 3 way component RGB
    2) 5-way RGB (R,G,B,+vertical & Horizontal synch)
    3) RGB (VGA)
    4) S - video

    help?

    To make use of progressive scan on your Fujitsu, you will need a DVD player that supports progressive scan. These usually have component outputs and you would need to hook it up to the component jacks on the plasma.

    Hope this helps

    Steve.

    According to here http://www.digitalconnection.com/HomeTheater/pds4222.htm it has the following inputs:

    Rear A/V
    Front A/V
    S-Video
    RCA Audio Input (L+R)
    Component Y-Pb-Pr
    Component Y-Cb-Cr
    RGB1 VGA 15-pin DSub
    RGB2 BNC 5 RGB+HV
    RS-232

    Since the component connectors are there you just buy a DVD player which supports PS. May need to check the PAL/NTSC compability for both, player and display.
