    Porgressive scan is a term for a de-interlaced signal. If this de-interlacing isn't done well it can cause more problems than it fixes.

    These Panasonics and the Loewe's mentioned previously have the ability to de-interlace some incoming signals. This is a feature they tout as offering superior picture quality. It doesn't mean they can accept an incoming progressive signal.

    However, it is likely that you may not actually notice any difference between their progressive and interlaced picture output. I have not seen the Panny but have done this with Loewe and not been bowled over.

    The best way to work out which is going to give the best pictue is to FORGET the specs and take a copy of some hard DVD's (insurrection,Gladiator etc) and head down to your local high street to get a dem.
