    I just bought this today, because according to Richer Sounds website it had component out and progressive scan to feed my new LG plasma.

    There's no option for progressive scan, but playback is nothing short of fantastic; does it do it by default?

    UK Pio 656 isn't Progressive. The US version is.

    You'll only get interlaced from the UK one.

    Bloody Richer Sounds' website!!!:mad:
    I had to return a Samsung plasma because they told me it had component and it didn't too.

    Jesus christ I can't believe how innacurate they are.

    I'll keep it, as it's not going to make much difference with the plasma, but I'll complain none the less to help them see where their otherwise excellent service is falling short.

    Hi

    It's also worth noting that the LG Plasma cannot handle PAL progressive.

    True, I may contact them regarding a firmware update if I need it.
