    Can anyone tell me if:
    a) My Sharp Z91E can accept a PAL progressive scan signal
    b) If it can, will there be a real improvement over the image I get already (through an 'old' Sony 735 via std component).
    Thanks
    Phil

    Thanks for that. I may be able to get a loan of a Denon 2900 at the weekend so will see what it looks like with and without prog scan (will have to be good as the standard picture is pretty amazing)

    as I understand that projectors are actually progressive.

    Therefore, you are watching a progressive picture but the PJ is doing the deinterlacing.

    Kramer recently advised a thread that generally, the source, if progressive can look better than the monitor if that makes sense.

    Either way, swapping the 735 for something like the Denon 2900 should reap visual rewards as it has a 12 bit video processor and newer video technology overall.

    I also own the 735 but I am happy to admit that it has had its day as a cutting edge machine!

    Oh, and you are one lucky bugger owning the Z91E...its an awesome machine.

    Hope this helps,

    Cap:)

    Hi,



    As stated already the 91 will accept PAL and NTSC progressive and the picture is much better with progressive.

    I have mine connected to an Arcam DV27 on progressive and the picture is great.
