Does TV have to be HDTV ready to do progressive scan? How'bout 3D comb filter thing? I'm trying to get 20~27 cheapest progressive scan TV. Thanks.

Yes, the TV set must be either HDTV-ready or have a HDTV tuner to have progressive scan.

You can find 3D comb filters on regular TVs.

Greetings

If this were a few years ago, you could get a progressive scan set that was not HD ready.

Panny and RCA had them. No longer though.

HD ready is the only place to find this tech.

Some plasmas are EDTV, they do 480p. They accept progressive scan signals from DVD players.
Good Luck

There is a new EDTV on the market, its Samsung's 27" TXN2745fp, and I have one. It costs $450-500 and does 480p and if you go into the service menu and enable it, 1080i. This set does seem to be plagued by faint bars going down the screen, but then no TV's perfect. Most Circuit City's carry the set.
