    i reconmend you have a search for "progressive scan" you need one with compnonent outputs but as the plasma is ALIS you may or may not want to use PS option........ spend as much as you can for an improvement in PQ and audio

    I've polled other Hitachi users on this, and the general concensus is that there isn't much to be gained by using progressive scan on these models.

    Agree with Nick, I've tried progressive and non progressive on my Hitachi 5300 with an Arcam DV79 and the picture actually looked better non progressive.
