    Ok, maybe I am being extremely dense (well, more than usual anyway!), but looking into a new plasma on HERE, and looking at each plasma, some are listed as having "Progressive Input (PAL/NTSC)" under the terminals section.
    Does this mean that the others aren't capable of progressive scan input from a DVD, most notably via component. I would have though the Pioneer screens could all display progressive NTSC & PAL, so is the site wrong, or am I missing something, such as a different input which I've never heard of?

    Thanks for any help, as always!

    no all current plasma should support 480p (progressive NTSC) and 576p (PAL Progressive) wether the choose to include that in the specs on a retailer website is up to the retailer......(and how much they understand the product)
