? RE non anamorphic DVD presentations on progressive scan plasma TV

I recently got a panasonic 42" plasma tv,(which I love!) and hooked my progressive scan dvd player to the progressive scan composite inputs. When playing some non-anamorphic dvd's , like the tv show 'friends' for instance, and some concert dvd's, I notice when the scenes shift from scene to scene there are very noticeable 'horzontal scan lines' that appear only momentarily then disappear but re-appear as the scene shifts to the next scene! Is this normal?, and why does this occur??? It definately does not happen with my anamorphic titles ! Any technical info on this would be greatly appreciated-

Sounds like your player isn't very good with video-sourced material rather than having a problem with non-anamorphic.

You could try setting your player to interlaced mode instead of progressive (or vice versa) to see if that makes a difference.

Why are you using composite inputs if you have a progressive scan player and a Plasma tv?

I have a feeling he's just referring to the component input as composite since they have the same looking RCA connector.
