    Having had the same thought I tried it and even through Component with all hidef modes switched on the xbox WON'T play dvd's in progressive scan, it's noticably worse than my Yamada ProScan DVD recorder which was about a hundred quid. I don't have the dvd remote kit but I shouldn't think that that makes any difference.

    Cheers

    We've been using the PS2 as our DVD player for far too long now... :) The picture is OK on a 28" CRT, but controlling it is a nightmare and the fans are really starting to bug me!

    if you softmod or chip your xbox you can edit the xbox dvd player to run in progressive scan along with the dashboard , but if you've forked out for a plasma you should go the whole hog and get a nice dvd player to complete the setup (if you can)
