    Shane,
    Interlaced=upconversion of 480i to 960i.

    Progressive=upconversion of 480i to 480p, with no 3/2 pulldown

    Cinemotion=upconversion of 480i to 480p, with 3/2 pulldown applied as needed for film based material.

    When Sonys are fed a progressive scan signal from a dvd player (480p) the drc mode choices are turned off and the set displays native 480p. If you feed it an interlaced dvd signal, use "cinemotion".

    For regular tv there is no right or wrong choice. As a rule "interlaced", which converts regular 480p to 960i does the best overall job, especially with fast moving pictures.
