    Hi All,

    Wondering if anyone could help me with a question I have regarding the DVP-NS585

    The player has progressive scan but I'd like to confirm that in conjunction with a progressive scan tv (Lg RE-44SZ21RD) using component I'll be able to watch region 1 & 2 dvd's OK?

    Thanks in advance for any info you can provide?

    Cheers,
    Blasthand.

    Panic over! :)

    I managed to confirm that the 585 is indeed PAL & NTSC progressive scan.

    How are you getting on with it?

    I want to get it for use with a PTAE100 projector.

    Hi,

    I've barely used it recently due to the fact that I'm waiting on delivery of my new TV (hopefully today!) and haven't had any of my home cinema kit running. Once I get it rigged up via component and prog' scan I'll post back. I'll be hooking it up the LG RE44SZ21RD.

    Cheers,
    Blasthand.

    Well, I finally got my player rigged up to the new set.

    A stunning picture it has to be said. I ran the player through rgb scart and then the component input using the progressive scan. It blew the rgb scart away completely. The definition was excellent, colours were vibrant - very pleased with it. :thumbsup:

    FWIW I've hooked it up using a profigold 1.5m oxypure component lead.

    Cheers,
    Blasthand.

    Good choice on the cable. I have the same but 5m in length.

    I think you have sold it for me. I will be getting one for my projector. At the moment Play.com do it for £110 multiregion.

    Let me know what you make of it, and I hope you find it OK.

    I bought mine from techtronics for £98. Great price but they sent it to me un-chipped. Had quite a bit of hassle getting it put right - much banging on big drum via email to get it sorted in a timely fashion - perhaps I was just unlucky getting an un-chipped one sent. All's well now though.

    It plays all regions with no probs, including RCE, and the region switching is all automatic. The other good thing I've found with it is that there is no delay when the disc moves onto the 2nd layer - with my old player it was very noticeable. Worth having just for that, let alone component and prog scan! :thumbsup:

    Cheers,
    Blasthand.
