    Hello, I just purchased a Panasonic ET-100DS line doubler, would like to hook it up to my KV36XBR400, and wondered what would be the best way. I do not have a cable box and my question is about the Coax cable into the actual TV. My thought is to hook up the Component Video cable from the monitor out into the component video into the line doubler and then S-video out of the line doubler into Video 2 on the TV. The component out of the Panasonic is BNC connectors for a monitor so I have to use the S-video out.

    I also have the option of using the tuner on my Sony satellite receiver SAT B2 and running the connections through there. I no longer use the satellite service after being introduced to the world of DVD so I would only use the tuner portion.

    My goal is to get Progressive output from my local cable programs. I have a progressive Sony DVP NS900V player so that picture is fine.

    Thanks,

    Michael

    Stupid question - Doesn't the XBR already has a decent built-in line doubler for interlace input? Why add the Panasonic?

    Also, I'm sorry, but I have a hard time following your description of which cables go where...

    It would be great if the KV36XBR400 did the line doubling itself. Is this feature automatic? or do I need to enable it? Sorry about the cable confusion, it is hard to describe. I doubt that I am viewing 480p from my cable broadcast.

    From what I've read everywhere, there is a line-doubler in the XBR400, which Sony calls it DRC. Don't know if it's automatic, as I don't have this set. I'll let others chime in.

    Found it, Thanks. I guess I will sell the Panisonic Line Doubler now that I don't need it.

    The Panasonic is the identical doubler as the Vidikron ET-100DS, now owned by Runco. I feel you will get much stronger processing from it than the XBR internal one, but your call. I know someone who will buy your Panasonic today if you want to sell it. His email is clicking here)
