Progressive Scan and Iiyama C480T

Hi, I just got this wonderful LCD TV and was trying out my new PS2 component lead. There's a problem though, as the TV only seems to recognise a Progressive Scan signal and so when I start a game I have to switch the av output on the PS2 so that I can start the game and then switch it to Progressive Scan. Then I have to switch the output again to the component cable.

I could put up with this if all my games were Progressive Scan but many of them aren't and the standard scart input on the Iiyama gives an awful picture compared to my old TV!

Is this a fault of my PS2 (it's quite old, came in the first batch of PAL machines) or is it that the C480 will only accept a Progressive Scan input? If this is the case, who did they make it for because I don't know anyone who likes to constantly switch cables :p

Hello Akael I too have the C480T (Best PC TFT / LCD Combo out there)

I never had this problem with my PS2 or Xbox, I have another which I have just posted.

Have u set your PS2 to Y,PB etc from RGB?

I paid just £805 (including P&P) from this place, which I found by chance on a google search (they don't advertise or have links to that particular section anywhere else).

It's an amazing screen, the quality in all areas has blown me away!

If I buy the Gamecube component lead, is there a setting in the options like this PS2 setting, or will it automatically send component and not RGB?

not sure dont bother with the cube, whats the PS2 image like in PAL interlaced mode (normal) via your component cable?

I am getting a horrible PAL image, check my thread for pics

also u got a great bargain, I got mine on its release about 3 months ago

I've found the standard PAL Interlaced mode looks fine, no banding as your XBox has. Did you buy an official/high quality cable?

no bought the cheap 7 quid one.

But it does NTSC HDTV prog resolutions fine:confused:

so i dont want to buy a high quality one to find it is the same.

also I have my xbox and DVD player routed thru an Audio AUthority Component Switch box but I have checked it isnt that.
