Would there be any definite benefits to using a DVD with progressive scan component output versus interlaced component output with a 75u projector? The 75u should deinterlace and perform 3:2 or 2:2 pulldown. I guess its simply a contest of who has the better deinterlacer technology the DVD player or the 75u.

I've had the 75u for about a week and will be the first to admit I'm no expert.....


When it first arrived, I was running Sony interlaced dvd > 15 ft. s-video > 75u and my untrained eyes were very happy with the pq right out of the box. However, after picking up the rp56 and a Canare breakout cable, I'm very, very, very, very happy.


I does make a significant difference.

So you went from s-video to progressive component - could you try switching the component output from progressive to interlaced and comment on the difference??

The setup menu allows tweaking of the R-G-B color settings, whereas you don't get that with the S-Video connection. As for an interlaced component signal, that would be an interesting test. I happen to have a Pioneer Elite 300DVD changer with interlaced component...I'll have to try it against my RP56 sometime.

Dxb, I believe you're right - it comes down to 'who has the better deinterlacer.' For point of reference, displaying progessive component seems a little sharper than interlaced component with my RP56.


Robert, RGB are only individually tweakable on an RGB (ie. HTPC) connection - not on a YPbPr connection.

To get RGB you can also use something called a transcoder. I havn't used one but it's talked about on the AE100 threads.


On your breakout cables are there two extra leads; black and gray? Are you just leaving them dangle or are you removing any pins from the connector or jumping them in some way? . I'm asking because I still can't get my toshiba 9200 to output a progressive signal to my 75U.


HTPC experiment:

Played a DVD (Crouching Tiger) from my Mac last night and it seemed to noticably reduce screen door which despite MLA has me sitting a lit6tle further back than I'd want to. My son thought it was radically better and more filmlike. I loved what it seemed to do to reduce screen door but wished I could still have the picture controls the DVD player offers. I will def. experiment with HTPC some more and may have to build a darn pc.

Bonedog. HI

IF YOU LOOK REALLY TO THE MANUAL. YOU WILL SEE

Finally got it to work after getting advice on the DVD hardware forum from another toshiba owner. I was only using the three RBG leads on the breakout - that wasn't the problem. There is a button hidden under the remote flap called colorstream seltector that switches it. Almost no mention in the manual. So far I havn't noticed much difference. I hadn't seen any artifacts wih interlaced and the Panny's processor and my player allows even more output adjustment on interlaced component. I will look at computer output again because it really seemed to nearly emlimintate screendoor.

thanks all
