Default CRT 480p Question

I have a Samsung 27" CRT that is capable of displaying 480p, 720p, and 1080i. I just hooked up my PlayStation 2 through some component cables to it. For a few games I tried turning on the setting for Progressive Scan but now the screen has a lot of flickering happenening. Is my TV messed up, my PS2 messed up, or is this just a problem with my TV trying to display a Progressive signal when the native resolution might be interlaced? How can I go about fixing this or testing my TV to figure out whats wrong with it?

If your HDTV is working correctly, it should not have problems receiving progressive scan material from the PS2. In fact Samsung claims "true compatibility" with progressive scan DVD players. I suspect you have the slimfit and not the dynaflat 27" as yours accepts 720p. Sounds like a problem with your Samsung.

My TV is a Samsung TX-P2775H. It's a normal CRT, not one of the Slim Fit CRTs. I read somewhere that most CRTs have native resolution that is interlaced, of various scan lines. I also read that because of this, most CRTs have shimmer/flicker when you try to play a progressive signal because it's still not in the native resolution type. Is there any relevence to this? How can I find out what my TVs native resolution is?

One thing I want to mention is this... the signals for all my games look exactly the same whether it's in Progressive or regular modes on my PS2. The only difference is that in Prog Scan, there are slight wavey lines or flicker or shimmering happening. I don't know how to describe it, but the signals look the same, minus the shimmering for Prog.

Any help would be appreciated.

All commercial CRT based HDTVs are interlaced, 1080i native. Some display 480p via 540p 'half res'ing'. They can't display 720p, they must convert it for display.

Yours is a 2004 DynaFlat model capable of accepting 480i, 480p, 720p, and 1080i, but displaying in 480p and 1080i. Try changing the output to 480p and see if the "shimmering" goes away. It should and I suspect that your Samsung TV is not as compatible with a progressive scan source as they claim. Pannys, SONY, and Toshis handle it fine in 1080i and Toshis both 580p and 1080i.

I have that TV and it works great with progressive scan. I watched that scene in Gladiator flying over the city with my dvd's output set to 480i then set to 480p and it was a huge improvement. Never had any flickering of any kind.

How do I go about changing my resolution? I just assumed that it auto converted. To the guy that has the same TV, where do I go to adjust the resolution, or is it in the service man menu?

Also, is it possible that my PS2 just sucks at displaying Prog signals??? I really hope it's not the TV, but I've had so many problems already with the TV and the company I bought it from, the TV is probably the one messed up.
