Ever do something real stupid that you could kick yourself for? Ever do it for a year? I have a RPTV, HD-ready, that I've had for about a year. Bought a progressive scan Panasonic DVD player along with it to make sure that I had the best picture possible. To that end, I've also gone into the service menu previously to try and achieve the best picture. I noticed that the display said that the signal was 480I. I was a little puzzled, but concerned with convergence and such thingswhen seeing it and did not pay that much attention, and did not test other than making sure that my Panasonic's menu had "progessive out" set to "enabled." I thought that it could have been some quirk in the display. Well, yesterday I was messing around in the service menu again, and as always, the TV said it was receiving a 480I signal. Not paying much attention as usual, I was switching between inputs. My Xbox, which I got last month was on. The TV said it was receiving a 480P signal from the Xbox. I was dumbfounded. Was it the DVD player? I switched inputs and cables, with the same result--Xbox was progressive, DVD player interlaced. I sat back down on the couch and started thinking about how long ago I bought the DVD player and whether it was still under warranty. I then got off the couch to take a look at the front of the DVD player "just in case." Staring me in the face was a button on the DVD player which said "progressive out." I pushed it with a trembling finger, the little green light on the button came on, and the TV immediately informed me that it was now receiving a 480P signal. If I could kick myself in the ass, I would have. I have been watching the damn thing in interlaced the entire time (with my wife and I remarking to each other how good progressive scan looked). AAAAARRRGGH! In my (pathetic) defense, the buttons on the DVD are recessed and are silver, just like the rest of the player. And why the &*#$ would you need to select progressive on both the menu and on the player itself?! Needless to say, I didn't RTFM because "how hard can it be?" Please don't take away my membership for stupidity! There, now I've vented. I'm gonna go watch my progressive scan DVD player now.
