Progressive Scan connection
If your television is a high-definition or “digital ready” television, you may take advantage of the recorder’s progressive scan output for the highest video resolution possible. If your TV does not accept the Progressive Scan format, the picture will appear scrambled if you try Progressive Scan on the recorder.
Connect the COMPONENT VIDEO OUT/ PROGRESSIVE SCAN jacks on the recorder to the corresponding in jacks on the TV using the Y Pb Pr cable (C).
Set the Progressive to [ON] on the setup menu for progressive signal, see page 19.
Progressive scan does not work with the analog video connections (yellow VIDEO OUT jack). Caution
Once the setting for Progressive Scan output is entered, an image will only be visible on a Progressive Scan compatible TV or monitor. If you set Progressive Scan to [ON] in error, you must reset the recorder. First, remove the disc in the recorder. Next, press STOP (x) and hold it for five seconds before releasing it. The video output will be restored to the standard setting, and a picture will once again be visible on a conventional analog TV or monitor.
