    I think the progessive scan switch is usually on the back of the dvd player or it may be in a setup menu it may have.

    I don't think you need to set anything on the tv.

    Is it possible you have some interference on the electrical outlet or are your cables connected snugly? Are the wavy lines only when viewing the dvd?

    Wavey lines can mean alot of thing...

    The progressive switch on/off should be in one of your DVD Player system menus. Try it both ways, as I'm sure that set will provide it on the Component Video Inputs.

    Other culprits can be grounding issues, Electrical Interference, I've even seen Radio wave interference cause it.

    Only on DVD. so that helps narrow it down some at least.

    Hmm, Ok, I have a ton of issues with most of the combo units, even some things like wavey lines. I'd replace it, DVD players are pretty cheap.
