While going thru the settings on the dvd part of my sanyo dvd/vcr reciever it went to progressive scan mode and now i can't get back to the setup part to turn it off, can you help me?

If your TV has component video inputs then it will work (and give you improved video quality) in progressive mode. If not try leaving it unpluged for several hours to see if it resets itself. Otherwise refer to your owners manual to see how to reset the settings.

According to the operating instructions (page 97), Progressive Scan can be cancelled (or turned off) by pressing and holding PAUSE (on the main unit) continuously for 5 - 10 seconds, until the progressive indicator goes out, or turning it off in the setup menu. Your recorder should now be back to normal interlace video output. I recommend that you check your setup menu after this procedure to make sure nothing 'AUTO' is set, that shouldn't be set, and subsequently turning off any function that isn't required.

Recording with closed caption

Better late than.. I think that the Polo can record the encoded closed captioning onto the HDD, but you have to have a CC equipped television to display the captioning.
The newer Magnavox and Philips recorders sold at Walmart record the captioning, and have the capability to display it even on sets without the built in CC decoder depending upon your recording settings. If you get a digital converter box and connect that as the source to your Polo, you can record CC displayed on the screen if you want.

just press and hold the pause key on the unit for about 5 or 6 seconds and the progressive mode light will go off and the picture will come back.

How do I turn off Progressive scan?

Hi, follow the steps it may help !! Press STOP button. ? If playing a disc, press the STOP button twice so that ?STOP?, appears on the display. Press and hold P.SCAN button on the remote control for over 5 seconds. ? Pressing and holding the button for over 5 seconds will select "Progressive Scan" and "Interlace Scan" alternately. ? When you select P.SCAN, "P.SCAN" will appear on the display. ? To set P.Scan mode for DivX discs, press the P.SCAN button on the remote control for more than 5 seconds with no disc in the unit (?'NO DISC" on the display), then load the DivX disc and play. regards sreejith
