    According to the specs it's a Video only device. So no Prog scan capability I'm afraid. Sorry!

    It does have RGB and Sync input are these of any use. Could I convert from my PC VGA monitor out to RGB?

    The PC's VGA output socket will be sticking out a progressive signal of more than 16kHz. So that won't work.

    You could use the RGB sync input to send RGB from Sky/Cable/DVD to it for, hopefully, a susbstantial improvement in picture quality over the composite feed. You'd have to check whether it'll accept the composite signal as sync though. Without reading manual and seeing back of unit it's hard to give definative advide on this one...Sorry again.

    Just to add to what Gordon said

    Standard Video (PAL,NTSC,Secam) only I'm afraid, no progressive, scaller or computor.

    I have the brochure as a PDF if you want it.

    Quotes the ideal viesion distance as 3 times screen width!
