I may be picking up a Pioneer 588a soon. It is progressive scan. The best input my display device has is S-video. I recognize this is FAR from optimal but I can't afford a new unit right now.


Can a progressive scan image be output through S-video?

I'm not sure about that. The component puts out a YPrPb signal. The vga is expecting an RGB signal. So it wouldn't be simply be a physical connection adaptor.

You need a YPbPr->RGBHV transcoder. They usually cost around the $200 mark new.



You can also get some players that output RGB in PAL territories, but it's usually RGBS (composite sync) or RGsB (sync on green), not the RGBHV that computers expect.

It depends on the display. Some will accept progressive signals through vga with a component to vga adapter, some won't. The Infocus x1/4800 for example will take progressive component via componet vga adapter.
