    Right - i think i've decided on this TV and the 962a dvd player (w/ pal prog. scan from Hivizone) combination....

    But, something has just occurred to me.....(being a bit of an AV imbecile)

    Can the Tosh TV handle Pal prog scan??

    Cheers

    I have contacted Toshiba UK about it. I asked them if the 28ZD26 will accept NTSC and as well as PAL progressive scan from a suitable DVD player. I quote their reply:
    "The 28ZD26P will accept progressive scan from a suitable DVD through the component inputs"
    When I asked them specifically about PAL progressive ( and mentioned that I knew it was not technically legal yet), they said they knew nothing about PAL progresive scan.

    BUT I have a feeling that it does accept PAL progressive as well...nly way to tell is for someone who has such a DVD to test it and let us all know!!

    I own a Tosh 36ZD29.. Basically a Tosh Strata with DD 5.1, DVB blah blah and it doesn't support PAL progressive scan. I own a Philips Q50 modded for multi-region, NTSC and PAL progressive scan. I've thrown in my R1 LOTR and it works fine but if I put in my R2 T2 DVD... I get a blue screen from my progressive outputs. On my interlaced outputs the image is fine.

    I'll do a further test once I'm able to run it on a plasma TV but I can say that it doesn't work on the Stratas....

    A local shop I know told me that they tested it with PAL progressive and it didn't work.

    Also only review I have seen also said it was NTSC only!!

    Apparently a new 32" model from Panasonic will display NTSC and PAL progressive.
    Sorry I can't remember the model number, but it was given a brief review in the current What Hi-FI.
    No mention of a 36" though.

    Its been documented already in depth but if you want an NTSC and PAL prog.scan TV then opt for a Loewe TV. Theres a massive thread all about it on the forums so just run a search...

    Or you could just go for a plasma ^_^
