I'm considering buying the Toshiba SD3755 Progressive-Scan 5-Disc DVD/CD Changer with MP3/DVD-R Playback.

I own a Toshiba CZ32V51 color television with "ColorStream" component video in. Now, this set is a few years old and isn't marketed as digital ready. I can't even find in the specs what resolution the set offers in component-video-in mode.


I'd love it if this set could handle the DVD player's progressive video output. However, in case it can't, I want to find out what other output options the DVD player has.


I've seen the companion single-disc player (SD3750) in the stores, and it has a switch on the back, next to the component outputs, labeled "P-I". I assume this means the outputs can be switched between progressive and interlaced.


Now, who can tell me whether the SD3755 has the same option?

I'd be surprised if the 3755 doesn't have the same P-I (progressive/interlaced output) switch. By the way, the switch means something subtly different than what it sounds like. In the P position, the output can be progressive OR interlaced, selectable via the remote. In the I position it's interlaced only.


I don't know your TV but it sounds very likely that it's not progressive compatible though.

I suppose that raises the question of whether a TV can be harmed by connecting a progressive component signal it isn't capable of receiving. I would doubt it, but wouldn't mind confirmation.


Anyone have the SD3755 able to say for sure it has interlaced output THROUGH THE COMPONENT OUTPUTS?

Your TV will not be harmed by attempting to pass the progressive signal through it's "interlaced only" component inputs. It will just be a scrambled picture.


The 3755 does pass either progressive or interlaced through it's component outputs.
