I recently purchased a SONY DVP-NS715P progressive scan DVD player for my TH-42PWD5 Plasma TV. I'm using a monster component video cable (with a RCA-BNC adapter) to connect them. Plus I made sure the output switch on the dvd player is set to progressive. But I'm wondering if it really is using a progressive (480P) signal. The reason for this is that when I refer to the manual for the plasma tv is says on page 22 (and I quote): "(2) For a 525p (480p) signal input during COMPONENT input signal mode, the mode switches between ZOOM and FULL only" It is refering to the aspect ratio controls for the plasma. The strange thing is that while viewing DVD movies, I'm still able to switch to NORMAL, ZOOM, FULL and JUST. While the manual says I should be able to switch between ZOOM and FULL only. Does this mean that the signal from the dvd player isn't progressive (480p)? Or is it the plasma? Or maybe the manual is wrong? Is there a way for me to test whether or not the signal is progressive? Thanks in advance. By the way, I'm from the US.
