Thomson 27lcdb03b Progressive Scan?

    I bought a Thomson 27lcdb03b, and a pioneer E55 DVD recorder. The screen goes haywire when I select progressive scan on the recorder. I have connected the recorder to the TV using component video connectors.

    Can the Thomson TV handle progressive scan? I cannot find anything to say yes or no.

    Also, I would like to know if anyone who has the Thomson feels the same way about the picture at night time:

    During the day, I think the picture looks fantastic, but at night, when it is dark, and when the tv is showing a dark / night scene, the picture is not really that good. The blacks are not black at all?

    I have tried to turn down the brightness, but it still does not look ideal.

    Thanks in advance.

    Most lcd's don't yet have fantastic contrast ratios yet, and are usually quoted as 400-500:1. I wouldn't expect great blacks on any of them as my projector is quoted at 800:1 and I find that just about passable for films.

    I'm going to buy an lcd tv anyway but don't expect to use it for films as I'll play those on the pj. I see the lcd tv's as good for everyday, non-critical watching.

    I think you need to check out another LCD tv at night before condemning your thomson.

    Calibration with Avia or similar would probably help.
