    Hi all,

    I’ve got an old Tosh Sd 520 DVD player with a component output.

    Sorry if the question seems a bit daft. This is my first post in this forum.

    My question is, do I only get progressive scan pictures with NTSC Dvd discs or is there other DVD players on the market, which can output both PAL and NTSC in progressive scan with a suitable display? If so, which DVD player shall I look for?

    I want to take advantage of PAL disc with the best picture quality without HDMI socket.

    Cheers. :hiya:

    How about the Pioneer DV-575, or stick with Toshiba and the SD350 to name just a couple.

    Also remember that just because a player says "progressive scan" doesn't automatically mean it would have a better picture than a normal player.

    Plenty of good quality non-prog scan players have far better PQ than cheap, run of the mill prog scan players.

    Hi neilmc,

    Do these players do progressive scan in PAL? or is it Just in NTSC materials?

    Cheers. :thumbsup:

    You asked for PAL progressive players didn't you, that's why I posted these two.

    Cheers mate! :smashin:

    I'm thinking of getting DV-575 and pair it with a Pana TH37pe50 plasma. Would try to sell my existing Tosh SD520.
