    Does anyone know whether this plasma accepts Pal and/or NTSC progressive, thereby bypassing it's internal de-interlacer? I presume that because of it's spec (1024x1024) it uses Hitachi/Fujitsu glass. Can anyone confirm this also please. Basically any info about this plasma would be most welcome.:)

    yes it uses the fugi glass not a bad plasma but i would be tempted with the new pioneer 434 if i were you,basically the sony is very much like the hitachi 400e

    The TS2 is more like the PD3000. Built in everything, it's an alis panel, intrinsically interlaced, you don't see a jump in quality with progressive with this screen. It also has a deeper punded back, and the wall mount is hideously expensive, the PD3000 is far better value if you want this kind of thing.

    Looks to have RGB euro-SCART input, potentially with wide auto switching, like the new Panasonics though.

    Sure it does, it's a telly. No idea if it's pal progressive compatible though, just it won't make much difference. Not the sharpest plasma in the drawer, to mix metaphors.
