    its the source that outputs a progressive signal.........ie.DVD player..........which your panel will accept............................but it won't necessarily give a better picture over a normal signal.....interlaced.

    somebody correct me if i'm wrong :D

    cheers,tam

    Panny plasmas are in herently progressive so will deinterlace all sources for display. A progressive DVD player is only going to give a gbetter Picture if it can de-interlace better than the panny.......only top end DVDplayers need apply (£500+)

    perhaps then you could offer me advice as to how to set my harman kardon dvd 22(£300 player)

    to quote from the manual

    Scan type: sets the video output to interlace or progressive. before changing the setting to progressive make sure that your video display is capable of handling progressive scan signals. as you select progressive scan the scan type, the video output will automatically change to component

    i have a 37" viera and am using component connections (not through amp but direct to plasma) - currently set to progressive on dvd

    any suggestions for improvement??

    thanks in anticipation

    thanks very much :smashin:

    do you think i have done things the right way connecting direct from dvd to plasma rather than through amp?? could not see any reason the put though amp and it just seemed another connection and interuption to the signal path

    your views??

    going via amp is ideal if you more component sources, Xbox,PS2 etc and need switching, if not the direct is ideal....
