    I have the Toshiba 42H83. I've read my manual front to back and there's no mention of a line doubler anywhere. What gives? I'm using the component input. My dvd player is a five year old Onkyo, 480i. Is my tv doing the line doubling with this connection, or not? Any comments are appreciated.

    Yes, your Toshiba has a built in line-doubler, technically known as a deinterlacer. It takes the interlaced output from your dvd player and performs the deinterlacing.

    Do you see horizontle lines in some scenes through the picture or something? These are greatly reduced when Progressive scan is in the picture.


    I have found many sets vague to say the least on their Progressive Scan feature.
