    I am having problems with a Toshiba Progressive-Scan DVD player.

    If I play a movie in Progressive mode, my system often loses video, but not sound.

    My system consists of Kenwood VR-5090 A/V Receiver, BenQ PB7200 Projector, and the Toshiba DVD Player.

    I am using the Component outputs on the DVD Player.

    When I play a movie in interlaced mode, all is fine and does not cut out.

    I have not yet tried different component inputs on my receiver to see if that is the culprit.

    I tried a Philips DVD Player before the Toshiba, and same thing happened, so I am lead to believe now that it is not the dvd player.

    Any advice would be appreciated.

    Check for loose connections.

    Try connecting the DVD player directly to the projector, even if you have to set the player on a high stool for a few moments.

    Are you using red/white/yellow audio/video cables for your component video. The performance of the red and white cables for this is unpredictable, and even the yellow might not have adequate bandwidth (14MHz needed for progressive scan).

    I am using Monster Cable Component Video cables (Red, Green, Blue)

    I can try connecting directly to the projector to see what results that will give me.

    I will also try different inputs on the receiver tonight.

    Thanks....
