    I have the following equip:

    Mitsubishi (VS-50803): 55 inch 1080 HDTV series
    JVC (XV-S500BK): Region-Free Progressive Scan DVD player

    When I switch the DVD player to progressive scan mode... the TV scrambles up and makes it unwatchable. I called Ken Cranes (where I bought the TV) and they said only the DVD player needs to be progressive scan to take advantage of the better picture. Is this true or do both the TV & DVD player need to be progressive scan capable? Or am I just doing something wrong.?

    If your tv is a HDTV monitor then it IS progressive scan capable. There could be a problem w/ the tv or the dvd player.

    How can I tell if the TV has progressive scan? I know it is an HDTV.

    in the upper left hand corner there is a display it will say 480i or 480p p is for progressive. you have to be using component cables to get the progressive to come thru though
