    Has anyone tried installing the software to enable Xboxes to play dvd's in progressive scan and if so how? I seem to be having problems getting the xbox to recognise the disk. (it is a cdrw)

    Help appreciated

    AFAIK there is no software to play back DVDs in progressive mode on an XBox - the only software DVD player available is simply a rip from the official DVD dongle, and doesn't support progressive scan. Bit of a shame really, I'd love to be able to supply my projector with PS from my XBox...

    Yes, I suppose technically speaking applying the patch to the XBox DVD player does result in progressive scan, but it isn't correctly de-interlaced progressive scan i.e. no motion compensation etc. applied - so it just looks a bit crap.
