    Hi folks,

    Progressive scan TV's are top of the range at the moment. Yet one of the top brands, Philips, don't have Progressive Scan on their CRT's. Is the quality so good that you don't need it? Does it deinterlace all signals internally without the need for progressive? What Video and Widescreen TV review the PS quality with any TV yet Philips PS is never mentioned.

    Could someone please explain or am i just missing that on their specs?

    I think the two main reasons are that 50Hz progressive is pretty flickery on a regular TV CRT and Philips don't want to admit that Pixel Plus isn't all that. Also, they probably feel that their Natural Motion chips do excellent de-interlacing (although you can't make use of it unless you also accept Pixel Plus / Natural Motion). But sooner or later they have to start supporting progressive scan input.

    Its because Philips use the Hitachi/Fujitsu developed Alis screen which gives higher resolution but only in interlaced. so they dont accept a prog scan signal.
