    Does the chroma bug affects normal TVs as it does the HDTV progresive scans, or if you have a Normal TV and you use an interlaced conection between the DVD and TV you wont be affected by the chroma bug

    Thanks

    Pablo,

    while the chroma bug is very apparent on my Sony DVP-700P in progressive mode I don't notice it in interlaced mode. I think it's progressive mode only.

    As far as I know, if the player has the chroma bug it will show up in interlaced mode as well as progressive. During interlaced scanning the odd scan lines fade as the even lines are being drawn, and vice versa, so the chroma bug is less noticeable.
    If you are using the interlaced output of the DVD player but going into a progressive scan TV, the better TV doublers treat the chroma bug affected areas as subject motion and will do interpolation which hides the chroma bug.
