    (Stupid question of the week) [​IMG]
    Will a progressive scan player be of any benefit to someone with a 'normal' (non-HD "ready") TV?
    What is the req. resolution of the TV to benefit?
    (Sorry, should have posted in hardware forum)
    ...the internet is a communications tool used the world over where people can come together to bitch about movies and share pornography.

    The TV doesn't have to be HD-ready, but it must have component video inputs (usually colored green, red, and blue and labeled Y, Pr, Pb or something similar) that accept a 31 KHz progressive signal (480p). Some sets have component video inputs but they only accept 15.5 KHz - that's interlaced, not progressive scan.
    Most TV monitors these days that accept a progressive signal are also HD-ready.
