    Which device should I let handle the progressive scan, the RPTV or DVD Player?

    Also, when I'm doing progressive scan from my player it locks out the ability to access some of my video setup functions via the RPTV. Is this normal?

    David,

    As a rule it's better to let the player do it as there will be fewer digital-to-analog conversions involved and most players have better doublers than most tvs, though Sony's drc is quite good.

    The only video adjustment options that are locked out when the set receives a progressive scan signal are those for the set's line doubler (called DRC by Sony). The DRC is only used to process incoming 480i (interlaced) signals, not 480p (progressive scan) or HD formats. Since the set's line doubler is not used when the set receives a progressive scan signal these adjustements are not necessary when playing a progressive scan input.
