    If I was to buy a R2 progressive scan DVD player such as the PIONEER DV-2750-S, and get it hacked to play R1, does that make it play R1 DVDs in progressive scan as well?

    Yes. PAL will play in 576p and NTSC will play in 480p.

    Is this true because it is a Pioneer? I see on the blurbs for their players that they have 'PureCinema PAL/NTSC Progressive Scan'.

    I only gave the Pioneer as an example as I was considering it at the time.

    If I was to buy ANY brand of player, does this still hold true? Confused since some manufacturers say 'PAL Progressive'. Afraid that the R1 discs might not play in progressive mode.

    They will, don't worry. PAL Progressive is mentioned as an extra feature because the earliest players only did NTSC Progressive.

    Is there any more word on the 575's PAL prog scan? Last time I remember, there was some debate over whether it was a true 576p mode or not.

    My Xelos reports the output from my 575 as 720x576 progressive when watching PAL discs.
    What was the issue with the prog scan from the 575?

    I have a question that's poking my small brain: what refresh rate does a progressively processed NTSC source run at??? I'm asking this because reconstructing progressive film frames from an NTSC 3:2 pulldown running at 60Hz (fields/sec) means reverting the playback to 24 full frames/sec...now, what happens when this is played on a progressive CRT TV, does it run at 48 or 72 Hz, or can it run at this refresh at all...whatever happens...please anyone???
