View Full Version : Progressive vs. Color Stream
01-12-2003, 05:44 PM
I have a Pioneer 47tx receiver and a Toshiba 51" TV. The TV has Colorstream and DTV inputs. The Colorstream says it handles both Progressive (31,5) and Interlace (15.75 kHz) inputs. The DTV says it handles 1080i, 480p and 480i inputs.
I have not tried yet, since I don't want to break anything (aka. smoke my set)
Which should I be using for playback of DVDs?

Set your DVD player to progressive output. This sometimes requires a switch to be thrown on the back in addition to the electronic programming changes.
Run component video cables from the DVD player to the HDTV. Set the HDTV to accept a 480p input from the DVD.

When the term "progressive scan" was unheard of, Toshiba lead the push towards this technology and coined their own term "colorstream".
No harm will come to your set if you feed a non-progressive signal to these inputs. you'll get a signal that looks like it's descrambled but still not to worry.
Definetly use this connection for best picture quality. There is a difference and in some cases, a big difference.
Btw, nice looking system!

First run a search on "bi-wiring" and/or "bi-wire". I just checked it and you'll find plenty of discussion on topic. The search button is near the top left of each page. It's always a good idea to search first.
If your searches ever come up empty, and they will, start a "new thread". Button for this is near the upper right of each page. Go to the "Forum Testing Area" and practice creating a new thread there. It's the learning area for new members. Just say, "Hi I'm new.." and you're off and running.
Your above question might never have been seen because it's tagged onto a thread talking about video issues. I just happened to stumble across it...
I'm pretty new myself and I think all "newbies" (as the Club's vets call us) fumble around a bit at first, but you'll get the hang of it soon enough. And these are good folks who will help you along... likely with a bit of ribbing thrown in at no extra charge ;)
Welcome to the Club... you're going to like it...
