Check JVC's website or you owners manual.

If you don't have a TV that can display progressive scan signals then it doesn't much matter.

What TV do you have? If it's a standard TV then your quest is for naught. If it's an HDTV you've got then a progressive scan is what you want. Like Frank S says, check with the owner's manual or the JVC website to know for sure.
