    Hi ,

    I have a Toshiba PF2 TV and I want some answers to the following questions:

    1. Is the ProgScan built into the TV or is it only going to work with a ProgScan DVD player ?.

    2. If it is built in, does that mean my xbox,vcv,laser disk with also be ProgScan when connected to the TV?

    I have just connected a iSCAN to the TV and the DVD playback looked the same to me????.


    P.

    You will need a progressive scan DVD player, any game you use on the Xbox must also support progressive scan.

    Regards

    I disagree with the above statement. I have a Toshiba Strata, which apart from PAL prog is very similar.
    The TV has it's own line doubler built in. If you connect a prog scan DVD via the component input, then the internal doubler is bypassed, but any other source can be displayed progressively, albiet at a lower quality. The internal doubler also does not have 3:2 pulldown, so none progressive NTSC signals are very ropey with loads of combing artifacts.
    I don't understand how you connected an i Scan though, I thought that they only output via VGA.
