I have a Sony VPHD50-HT projector. I checked with the supplier (Marata), whether my unit was configured to accept progressive scan via the component inputs. Marata confirmed so, after checking the serial number of my unit. I bought a Pioneer 757Ai PAL/NTSC progressive and connected it in place of my long serving Panasonic (region 1 only). I used the same component cables ( high quality Monster) and looked forward to seeing the difference on my Da-Lite 7ft screen. I forgot to say that I used the instructions sent to me by Marata which are basic and take you through setting the parameter of the "set input" menu from "component" to the value appropriate for Progressive on the projector. I can't recall what this value is named, but there are three possible values, "component", "RGB" and the last one which one I believe is the one I am after for progressive. To my amazement, all I got was a distorted image which kept disappearing from the screen. Suffice to say the Pioneer progressive scan button was also set to on. The image is so jumpy, you can't even see the Sony menu screen to enable you to make adjustments. Switching back to component on the projector restores a glorious picture, albeit interlaced - better than my old Panasonic. So I can't wait to see a progressive image. Can anyone help me with what my problem may be?
