Just hooked up my Malata player. Having some initial problems. Using the SETUP button, I went into Common Users and set my TV up for 16:9 mode. I set my AUDIO to 5.1. I left the VIDEO mode at the first selection (CVBS Y V CVBS). The problem is with the SCAN TYPE. Once I selected it to PROGRESSIVE, my TV totally whacked out. The video signal went crazy and for a few minutes I thought I would never be able to reset it -- that is until -- I read the manual and by pressing SUBPICTURE on the remote for about 5 seconds, the picture popped back into interlaced mode. I am sure I missed something, but I cannot get this baby to run with PROGRESSIVE output. Also, the video is rather dark and very grainy compared to my Panasonic RP91. I am sure part of this is the PROGRESSIVE vs. NON-PROGRESSIVE, but my initial thoughts are that the video is not nearly as good. One more thing to also consider.... My Panasonic is hooked up via component video out (red, green blue). My Malata is hooked up with S-Video. I would think that this shouldn't make a HUGE difference, but perhaps it does. Appreciate the help.
