    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..

    At last the definitive statement! Well done Demon.

    Pity Toshiba don't seem to have a clue about the capabilities of their own sets!

    Now, if they would just release full blown HDTV sets within the next 6 months or so I'd be in heaven!

    Regards,
    Paul

    Demon,

    There's no stopping you! Taking the Tosh to next level again....

    Are you now saying that we have 2 additional steps (PAL & NTSC progressive scan) to add to your already super duper tips & tweaks for the **WH36? Are these to be carried out the same as other modes? Any special instructions?

    & No it hasnt arrived still waiting for the monster!
