My friend called me over to his house today to check out his new DVD player (Toshiba SD4700). He told me he was unimpressed and he could not tell the difference over his Sony DVP-s530d (interlaced, a few years old). He owns a 65" Mits diamond model 16x9 set from 2 years ago. Here is the problem in a nutshell: when I press "Colorstream Selector" on the Tosh remote to switch it to Progressive Output, the screen goes all scrambled, but you can still hear the audio. Hit Colorstream again, and it reads Interlaced on-screen and the picture is back to normal. We tried this on Mask of Zorro (anamorphic) and Top Gun (non-anamporphic) - same result. Here's the rub: he's running his component video through his Denon AVR-3300 receiver (DVD in and Monitor out). I didn't have time to stay and troubleshoot but my first guess was that the Receiver could not relay the progressive signal? Is that possible? If that's not it, what else can i try? I'm sure the player is fine, and that he just has something set wrong. I quickly went into the player's menu and he's got it set for 16x9 TV and Progressive Conversion is set to AUTO. Could it be his Mits TV has only one input that will ACCEPT progressive and he's not using it? There's a p/i switch on back of the Tosh and it's switched to P. THOUGHTS??? Thanks!
