question for John Dawson (Arcam)

Hi John,

I've just bought a DV88plus, (last week). Do you know whether the Pal Prog scan is active on these new shipments, now that your player has been approved, or will I have to activate it with the remote (the button presses that dare not speak it's name)

It is active and accessed from the main set up menu (second page I think). There are 3 options - interlaced only, 525p and 625i. and 525p and 625p. The middle option is useful where a display supports 525p but not 625p. If you get stuck in PS and have an interlaced only display, holding the stop button down on the front panel for I think 5 seconds restores the unit to all interlaced outputs.

HTH and enjoy your DV88 Plus.

Thanks John,

You may get other people asking the same thing as no mention is made of this in the manua.
