OK.. there has been much debate over whether this series of Toshiba RPTV's does support PAL Progressive Scan, as well as NTSC Progressive.. Well the answer is YES!!! it does.. using a sony 730 pal/ntsc prog scan player, we tried a PAL dvd, stuck the player into Prog mode, and low and behold a progressive scan image... When presented with a progressive scan signal, the set auto-switches to PROGRESS mode internally, and switches DNR Off. The external prog modes have their own convergence settings, as we found out, initially the PAL prog looked way out, so we converged the set, and then when we put NTSC prog scan in, we had to re-converge again, as this was miles out. but once set, they were fine after that.. I'll leave my judgement over whether Prog scan is any better.. remeber these Tosh sets do a stunning job with interlaced material anyway..
