    I am thinking of buying this set but I cannot find if it supports progressive scan or not as my searches on Google only come up with the 36ZD26P model and I cannot find anything about the 36ZD26B.

    Here is where I am thinking of buying from:

    Plus any other links/info would be much apreciated.

    It definetly supports prog scan but not PAL!!!!

    NTSC (US, JAP) ONLY!

    its very nice with import games/DVDs ;)

    Just make sure you get prog scan DVD player and/or component cables for your import consoles.

    Bash, are you 100% sure it don't support PAL prog? Toshiba told me it didn't but the What HiFi review and a few other users say that it does.

    The ZD26 model does not support Pal Progressive as far as I know. Believe What HiFi at your peril :).

    The ZD26 range of TV's (Strata) support NTSC progressive scan from a suitably equipped (i.e. multi-region (region 1 NTSC )) DVD player. They do not support PAL progressive (if you do a search of this forum you will find owners of the ZD26 who have tried it with PAL progressive only to see a blue screen.)

    The ZP38 (Picture Frame 2) accepts both NTSC and PAL progressive, despite what Toshiba say. What Hifi tested it with a PAL progressive DVD player and confirmed it does.

    The reason that the ZD26 (strata) doesn't support PAL and the ZP38 (Picture Frame 2) does, is that PAL progressive standards were ony recently agreed, before then it was illegal. Picture Frame 2 is the latest progressive equipped Toshiba TV so supports this. Stratas came out before standards were agreed.

    Hope this helps. :)

    Oops, thought you were talking about the new picture frame - saw the B at the end and misread the model number. I know the strata is NTSC prog scan only cos i have one.

    Cheers for the info everyone. Looks like I'll go for the 36ZP38 for PAL progressive scan goodness.

    Just out of interest are there any other sets that support PAL progressive scan?
