    Does anyone know of any issues concerning using playstation game console on a 100 hz television, I thought I read somewhere they were advising against using playstations with 100hz.
    Any ideas?
    Thanks.

    You talking about PS1 or PS2 ? If the telly has some motion compensation technology built in then a game with poor FPS can appear as "jerky" concerning picture motion. Usuallu in these cases the problem is cured by selecting a 100 hz mode with less aggressive motion compensation (like 100 hz digital scan) but some tellys might not offer this option at all.

    certainly there isnt any technical reason why you shouldnt, though as maxi says it can sometimes result in a poor image.

    I use component out with prog scan on my PS2 and my TV only shows prog scan at 50hz but with the exception of a few very old games they all look great

    The only thing to make sure with 100htz TV's, is that you run a proper RGB scart cable from your console to your TV/VCR. If you do this, you will find picture quality and motion to be very much to your liking.

    arcamalpha, the only issue that I can think of would be with "Gun Controllers" which may require 50Hz scanning.
