    Got an NEC VT45 projector and a Sony DVP-NS730 DVD player - this combo means I can play NTSC discs back progressively (as it supports 525p), but not PAL (no 625p support).

    So do I need to change my projector in order to be able to play PAL discs progressively, or am I missing something (or some kind of gadget!)?

    The VT45 with manufacturing from 10/01 are possible to work with PAL progessive, if there was made an FW update.

    The VT45 from 03/02 are all modified for PAL progessive.


    VT45 accept a signal only an YUV (interlaced/deinterlace) via the VGA INPUT

    Thanks for the reply, Dimitris_Z.

    Where did you find out about PAL progressive compatibility for the VT45? My manual only hints it's NTSC (as it only lists 525p not 625p)? Also, know anywhere good to look for the firmware update?

    Cheers!

    Hello LotusElan,

    all information was from NEC Germany support.
    As the VT45 is old PJ is difficult to upgrade. Also the firmware upgraded in many cases was failed and created problems to VT45.
    The solution is to buy a cheep DVD with VGA D15 output. Connect the PJ to DVD via VGA to VGA cable. The received signal (PAL or NTSC) to PJ is progressive.
    The best solution is to connect a PC to PJ.
    Are you using, Scart-RGB to VGA or Component to VGA connection????
    Let me know if you need more info (and sorry for my English).
