I was calibrating my TV's (Tosh 57HX81) settings last night using the VE DVD. Afterwards, I was switching back and forth from progressive scan and interlaced mode. I noticed during the scene with the American Flag waving, I had a lot more "stair-stepping" of the flag in progressive mode than in interlaced mode. Is this because my TV's de-interlacer is better than the DVD players (Panny RP91)? Or is it because the Tosh upconverts to 540p and in progressive mode introduces more artifacts than in interlaced? Anyway, whatever the reason the picture looked better in interlaced mode. Which surprised my because I always thought it was the opposite. It was late last night so I didn't try different movies to see if this was consistent. I'll experiment a bit more later with different DVDs and see if this is the case.
