Does anyone know if this set is upgradeable to prog scan please?
Isn't that a 50hz tv? You can't upgrade 50hz tvs to progressive scan although it should produce its best pictures with a interlace component feed. The sets still capable of a better image than most 100hz high scanning interlace rear projection sets and possibly even some progressive rear projection sets too.
Progressive is "not" 100Hz, it's 50Hz.
I'm referring to the set being a normal 50hz scanning set not a 100hz set with a 50hz progressive option. Good progressive images normally start at about 75hz refresh rate on most sets anyway. Perhaps my memory isn't serving me well but I seem to remember 50hz progressive modes are pretty flickery and 100hz interlace mode is preferable normally as you have a screen update twice as fast even if its only displaying half as much detail at a time.
That depends on what the user prefer but progressive 50Hz is the quality wise best option to use.
If you own a large RPTV like my 57" you can see the difference between ordinary 100Hz interlaced and progressive 50Hz as all scanlines and jaggies goes away with progressive.
You won't see that difference on a small 32" or 36" as being noticable.
The flicker isn't annoying at all as it the most natural way to display the picture compared to 100Hz which introduce artifacts in the picture making it unnatural.
I have to be honest I've never seen 50hz Progressive scan in operation. All the sets I've ever seen have been 75hz or more. A 57" tv with a 50hz scan rate! Is it not flickery at all? When you get high contrast text on display does it flicker?
Yes i noticed flickering in the beginning, but i got used to it over time and now it doesn't bother me at all.
