    Hi,

    Spent the weekend trying to set-up my new Denon DVD 2910 with my PW7 (via a Denon AVR 2805).

    I've got the component board on the PW7 but the only way I can get audio and picture to appear is if I set the 2910 to output an interlaced signal (via component). No matter what option I try (HDMI/DVI set to off and everything else) I can't get Progressive Scan to work... :mad:

    Reading the forums I was expecting the Prog Scan PQ to be superior and would love to see how it compares to interlaced (even though this is far superior to my previous input from a PS2 !)

    Can anyone help ???

    I reackon you will get a better picture with your DVD outputting an
    interlaced picture and allow the panel to de-interlace the signal.

    I found the picture to be better this way!?!?

    Im sure a few people will agree. :confused:

    I have the same amp and DVD player and have exactly the same problem with a PAN TH37 PE30 . I have called Panasonic and they have advised that it could be because the DVD player has been modified . I am trying to get my hands on a non modified DVD player to see if there is still a problem. Have you managed to get round the problem ?.

    I haven't tried with a PW7, but I've had a 2910 running with prog scan and a PHD7, I'm sure it's nothing to do with the amp. I would persist with trying, the 2910 is likely to show an improvement with progressive over interlaced. A cheap player would not necessarily show this, but we could harly describe a 2910 as 'cheap'.

    With progressive scan you have two sources working together. You have the dvd player outputting p/s and the tv de-interlacing. The thing to realise or figureout is that the tv is doing the same or a better job of progressive scan/de-interlacing than the dvd player. Thats why when you turn p/s off on the dvd you still get the same picture quality on the tv as the tv is doing a good job of p/s (de-interlacing). Having said that the 2910 is a very good quality dvd player and should provide a better picture with p/s turned on. Also paolo, when you set the dvd player to p/s are you not getting anything at all come through? I think with most if not all dvd players if you set p/s to on you should still get a picture with p/s or it will default back to interlaced. Does anyone else want to confirm this? Im not sure about non-modified dvd players if this would effect it or not? You could try the gut who wrote this review at http://www.audioholics.com/productreviews/avhardware/DenonDVD-2910Review1.php If you try sending him a friendly email he could probably advise you on what you need to do or confirm what your saying. I cant think of anything else!

    Sorry one last thing to try. In the setup menus for the Denon make sure that the HDMI/DVI connection is set to OFF otherwise p/s wont go through component. Just a simple thing to try.
