I know the Skyworth has it as does the EAD.


What others exist and what chip are they using?


Your help is greatly appreciated !!!

Do you need progressive?


If not, then EVERY player costing more than $400 sold in Europe for the past four years supports RGB output. RGB is the standard output format of dvd players in Europe. Only some cheesy-cheap players only output s-video and do not offer RGB at all.


Almost all European dvd players are also hackable (via hardware mod or remote control) to all-region.


However, only a precious few will support PAL progressive via RGB output after being hacked (apparently Arcam FMJ DV-27 does this).


cheers,

H8nXTC,


VGA (din type 15-pin connector) is an interface/connector specification.


It can carry both RGBHV and Y/Pb/Pr component signals.


SCART (Euro) connector usually gives out RGsB and/or S-video signals


You can convert between RGsB and RGBHV.


The players I know of that output PAL Prog through RGB (either variant) either use VGA (e.g. Skyworth) or SCART (e.g. Arcam FMJ DV 27).


cheers,

Halcy

Would like to run the progressive output of a player directly to my projector which does not accept component in.


I am currently using an EAD P vision but have used the skyworth in the past. I was hoping to add an additional player with similar capabilities.


Sorry for not being clearer


Thanks

Daewoo 9000N is another with 15-D VGA connector and progressive output. It has progressive-only component also. It sells for $140 on Amazon. It's hackable to be region free and macrovision free. Quality control is poor so there is a 50/50 chance of a bad unit.


Nintaus, Malata are a few others with VGA output.
