    You must have both a progressive scan TV and a progressive scan DVD. There are also two formats of prog scan, NTSC and PAL. Your TV and DVD need to match these too i.e If your TV only does NTSC prog scan you need a DVD that does NTSC prog scan. Some of the newer models of TVs and DVDs will have both but as PAL prog scan is fairly recent you can find some models that only support NTSC prog scan and therfore only works with region 1 DVD discs.

    You don't necessarily need a progressive DVD player, as some TV's have progressive modes that will de-interlace an interlaced feed.

    However, most progressive DVD players will do a far better job of providing a progressive signal than an internal TV de-interlacer.

    In any case, your TV must support prog scan
