    I have just tried changing the settings on my Pioneer 575 DVD player and Z2 so that the projector is doing the prgressive scanning rather than the 575...but I am not convinced it is either better or worse :confused:

    Which would most likely give the best image results as the process is not exactly done in secons so it is hard to tell by eye.

    I deserve that :smashin:

    When I posted it was difficult to get an idea of which looked better as it took a couple of minutes to do the swap from one to the other...but after a while I noticed the dreaded vertical banding that has been talked about so much on the Z2 was very noticable when using the projectors progressive scan.

    Now I know that over on the AVS forums they have gone into great detail about how to partially eliminate this problem in the service menu but I am reluctant to start messing in there (still have nightmares about the service menu on my Tosh RPTV :eek: )

    When I switched back to the 575 the vertical banding was all but gone but I was seeing a lot more edge enhancement and some fizzing around some areas that was not present when using the Z2..

    I dont suppose there is an easy answer to trying to get the best of both worlds :(

    Dont make me.....I'm scared......Mummy :eek: :eek:

    I would be interested to hear from any Z2 owners who have managed to elminate the vertical banding problem when using the on board progressive though.
