    Hello all, newbie alert.
    I just got one of the new Malata 996s, and it's great so far, but outputting progressive scan via component yields a garbled mess. Interlaced looks okay, but vertical bands are noticable on a dark/black image . Is this WEGA capable of displaying a progressive signal? Are there any fixes, possibly in the service menu, for the banding problem? Any help is appreciated.

    Greg,
    Your set will not accept or display a progressive scan signal.
    About the only sets sold in the US that will are the HD-ready models.
    Sony does make Wegas that are HD-ready, the XBR series and a new lower priced line, but they are 32 and 36 inch, no 27 inch model is available.

    I prefer not to push the subwoofers until they're properly run in.

    I am confused and somewhat of a newbie...
    In my home theater budgeting, I have chosen to go with the less expensive 32 inch WEGA - non XBR - I think the KV32FS13 or something - and assumed that since it has component input, I will finally be able to use a progressive scan DVD player, since one of the selling points of this year's models - including the 27 as far as I know - is component input...
    I know this may sound ignorant - but what is the point of component input if prog. scan is unavailable....
    I would highly consider then going with a more expensive set - only that means I would be unable to get the amp (Denon 2802) and speakers (KEF Cresta) I want......

    Greetings
    There are two kinds of component video inputs.
    The 480i variety
    and the 480i/p/1080i type. Different animals.

    Thanks for the responses. No progressive scan for me, unfortunately. Oh well, at least I can view anamorphic titles and correct the Wega's oversqueeze with the Malata's x-y scaling feature. Looks quite nice, even interlaced.

    For the 32" WEGAs, I recommend getting either the -17 or -27 over the -13. They will still not do progressive, but they have quite a few more features for not too much more $$. If you're going to spend that kind of money, might as well get the better stuff...
