Is Panny really progressive?

Hopefully someone here has some insight into this issue. While hooking up several new panasonic dvd players (dvds55s and dvds35s) I noticed that my displays (Mitsubishi WS65x11's and Hitachi Plasmas) both show that the signal is 480i. I enabled the progressive feature on the menus but that did not help. I also played with the re-master feature but nothing. If anyone has any clue let me know. Thanks, Jason

You need to turn it on in 2 different places. First, in the regular system setup menu. Then, in the display toolbar under the section where you can fine tune the picture for different picture modes, including Cinema and User modes. It's called Transfer type, IIRC.

Jason, the new Pannys require you to switch it to 480p in two different places. I myself was thrown off by this until I found the second place to go in the manual.
