Ok, I think I my have an incompatability problem, but I'm not sure, I need some help here hehe. I just bought a new JVC XV-FA900BK Progressive Scan DVD player. I got it hooked up to my Sony 53HS30 HDTV television and I'm not sure if the settings are just wrong, or if my tv is not compatable with this player. First of all, I hooked it up with component video, just like my old DVD player, and popped a disc in. Looked fine to me, but then I noticed that the "Progressive" light wasn't lit on the DVD player. I read in the manual and figured out how to switch it on. I did this, and the picture went completely bad. It looked much bigger and I finally realized that switching to Progressive had cause my set to go out of 16x9 mode (which is was set to for the DVD player). I went into the tv's menu and manually set it to 16x9, which seemed to have fixed the problem entirely. My question is this: Am I getting true Progressive Scan mode this way? The DVD player says it is in Progressive mode, I have my television set to 16x9 manually, and the picture quality looks pretty decent. I'm sitting here looking for flaws and whatnot in the picture and can't really tell that it looks THAT much better. I popped in Fellowship of the Ring and I do notice that the colors look way more vibrant, but I'm still not convinced that my tv is displaying it properly. Shouldn't the tv know that the source is 16x9 when I switch it to Progressive Scan mode on the dvd player? Any help would be appreciated, thanks much in advance!!
