    FNG question: Can anyone from the esteemed projector forum tell me if this Sony LCD will accept a progressive scan signal from a suitably equipped DVD player?
    Thanks in anticpation.

    The W400 will not accept Pro scan only interlaced DVD.
    However it will take a 1080i signal from a HTPC :D I believe.

    Thanks for the speedy answer.

    Can I ask dumb question? To receive the potential 1080i signal, would it go through the component/RGB or SVHS/Composite input on the W400QM?

    I did see on the I think it was on avs-forum that some USA people were getting HI Definition TV by a similar route.

    Thank you.

    You would need to use a PC with a VGA ( HD15) to 5 BNC cable connecting to the RGB input on the W400.
    You would probably need to use a custom resolution by using powerstrip www.entechtaiwan.com and a G-force, matrox or Radion graphics card.
    I havent tried this myself but if you get stuck I can get hold of a W400 and give it a go.

    Thanks for your informative answer, which was very quick again. I'll take a rain check on trying your solution out. Nice offer though.

    Best Wishes
