    Hi!

    I understand that the tosh 32zd26 have an internal progressive scan mode but can it handle progressive scan from an external source (read DVD).

    My hopes is that it can handel progressive scan PAL to?

    There is a new version 32zd36? Does this machine handle progressive scan input?

    Please, I really nead to know! Thanks :)

    the zd26 can either deinterlace internally on all signals, or accept an external NTSC prog scan signal. NO support for PAL progressive (in fact PAL progressive capable CRT's are still comparatively thin on the ground)

    Can't find any info on a 32zd36 but I believe the 32zd26 only does NTSC Prog Scan but the newer 32zp38 (picture frame2) does both NTSC & PAL Prog Scan.

    The new 32ZD36 has a new tube with a better microfilter, I believe, and also PAL prog scan.

    You can find the tech specs here:

    http://www.toshiba.de/consumer/default.htm

    go to PRODUCKTE --> Design/Real flat tV

    to cut it short:

    Eingänge (inputs):
    3 x Scart (1x RGB, 2x S-VHS, 3x AV)
    Front S-VHS (seitlich)
    Front-AV/Cinch (seitlich)
    Component Video In - YUV (525p/525i/625p/625i)
    Audio In (Cinch)

    So the answer is yes the 32ZD36 is PAL Prog Scan, but beware not all Tosh models are available everywhere, so maybe this model is only for sale in Germany and eastern countries, and its substitute for UK is the 32ZP38 (which btw isn't sold in germany).
