AUTO" or "PROGRESSIVE VIDEO"
using the PROGRESSIVE button on the
front panel (the PROGRESSIVE indicator
lights up) even though your TV cannot
accept the progressive signal. In this case,
disconnect the HDMI cord from the player
and then select "NORMAL
(INTERLACE)" so that the
PROGRESSIVE indicator turns off.
, Even if your TV is compatible with
progressive format 480p signals, the image
may be affected when you set the player to
