I have a 20 inch Sony flat screen trinitron, it has component input, can it play prog scan?
Sorry, you have to have a digital (read HDTV) set to get progressive output from the component connections on the TV and DVD player. In your case, the component connection on your Sony will yield about a 10-20% increase in picture quality over S-Video, but it will not be progressive scan.
then why does it have it?
Because component is better than s-video, even when transmitting 480i. It is not the connection that allows progressive scan, it is the circuitry inside the TV. Without a progressive scan capable TV, component connections are just better connections for interlaced video.
Since we're essentially talking about that 20-inch Sony, we'll move the discussion over to here in Display Devices.
I thought it was?
