    Has anyone determined if the oldest generation of Wega Televisions (XBR200) are compatible with the progressive scan DVD players. I dont mean just selecting INTERLACING. This model was spposed to have 30Mhz video bandwidth which should be more than adequate for the progressive scan input.
    Anybody have done?

    From the user manual that I download from Sony, there's absolutely no mention of acceptance of any HD or progressive scan signals at all.

    Since it is an analog set, I'm pretty sure that you cannot feed it a 480p signal.

    Correct. The 36XBR2xx sets are interlaced-only, but my XBR250 looks every bit as sharp playing a DVD in 480i mode as my 32HS500 does playing back 480p. Keep in mind that the vertical resolution capability of these sets is > 400 lines anyway, so 480i in compressed (16:9) mode is going to pretty hard to beat, even with a digital set. These are unquestionably the BEST analog TVs Sony ever made.

    But the answer to your question is: for 480p you need an internal frame buffer memory... i.e., a digital set --the earliest being the XBR400, I believe.
