    If you buy a dvd player with progressive out, is it just the dvds that are progressive or can you watch normal tv through it so that it converts the signal to progressive?

    Thanks

    Some DVD players can take an external source and convert to progressive and possibly scale. These are normally towards the higher end of the market.

    Thanks...........


    I know dvd recorders do this but I'm thinking about buying a freeview box with hd as I dont record that much anyway. I also want sacd/dvda as well as progressive out on all inputs. Any ideas where to look?

    The Meridian G98 and G91, for example, do as you wish but they don't do SACD. But a cheaper solution may be to buy a DVD player with the features that you want and an external deinterlacer/scaler.
